The Best Work of The Month

The Best Work of The Month

Keunwoo Park

The protagonist of Monthly Best April is student Geun-Woo Park, 396th grade. Student Geun-Woo Park is creating a creature character called 'Lizard Man'. It's a character from a game I played when I was young, so I'm making it with more affection. Geun-Woo Park, a student, has been interested in CG since he was a child, and he likes to draw and watch movies and make things. Park Geun-Woo's portfolio tip is to 'analyze and observe how sculpting was done while looking at the reference and what process the texture was made through'. They also found it helpful to get feedback from teachers and other people. Congratulations once again to Geun-Woo Park, who was selected as the best student in April, and SF Film School will be with you until the completion.

Taewan Kim

The monthly best protagonist for March is Kim Tae-wan from the 370th grade. Student Taewan Kim is making a work with a horror concept with the main theme of 'Devil' from 'Constantine 1'. It contains the story of a hospital where life and death coexist, a hospital where there is no life and only death. Taewan Kim, a student who saw the planet Pandora in the movie 'Avatar', thought deeply about CG and was moved to visit the science fiction film school. Taewan Kim said that the most important thing when creating a portfolio is 'continuity', and the next most important thing is reference. A well-planned storyline can save a lot of unnecessary work time, and when searching for references, it is recommended to search not only simple modeling references but also SCENE references. Congratulations once again to Student Taewan Kim, who was selected as the monthly best in March, and we will be with you until the SF Film School is completed.

Review of a technical seminar with "Dennis Müller"

This technical seminar was run by Dennis Müller, who is a Lighting & Compositing Artist in Walt Disney Animation Studios. He joined various VFX productions, such as Bumblebee, Star Wars, Moana, Encanto, Aladdin, and etc. In the previous seminar, he focused on shooting techniques and shot design, but in this seminar, he focused on the technical parts. This seminar was a real-time feedback session, so our students could ask any questions that they had in the world of VFX overseas, and advice that they needed for completing their portfolios.
Our SFFS LAB students could have a more objective look on their portfolio and helpful feedback on their portfolio composition and weak spots, thanks to Dennis Müller.

The Best Work of The Month

The Best Work of The Month

Eunbin Lee

The protagonist of Monthly Best February is Eunbin Lee, a student in the 390th grade. Eunbin Lee, a student, is making a toilet and a character in the movie 'Joker', where the Joker's mood changes. Eunbin Lee, a student, said that she chose a Joker as her portfolio that has a concept but is attracted to the color of the lighting and the overall atmosphere. At first, I was only going to make a bathroom and finish it, but after consulting with the teacher, I think that if I make a joker and show the feeling that the painting on the face is erased, the overall quality will be improved and there will be more variety, so they are working on the Joker figure. It is said that Eunbin Lee's work tip is to constantly visit other people's confirmation posts that appear in the LAB cafe, and to grow eyes while feeling things that they have never experienced, even indirectly. Also, he said that it was very helpful to ask the teachers a lot without hesitation and to broaden their knowledge. Congratulations once again to Eunbin Lee, who was selected as the monthly best in February, and the SF Film School will be with you until the completion.
