Here it is, my (neo)Surrealist Animation
The Future History of Mankind is a series of scenes both directly, and indirectly inspired by my dreams, and by the works of the Surrealists. Prior to this project, most of my animated work has either been for computer games, or else were created using 2D techniques.
The experimental nature of this animated short allowed me to explore ideas and concepts I may never have otherwise never attempted.
In order to create a work which would be true to the surrealist vision, I found it more important to recreate the images of my dreams, rather than rely on the heavy handed insertion of Freudian symbols into my work.
I focused on an implementing a different aspect that I find interesting about surrealism and the subconscious mind in each scene.
The end result is a hammering of Automatic imagery, Symbolism, Altered Reality, Dreams, Nightmares, and Anxiety which is thrust upon the viewer.

I have been working on a few concept games I thought I would post.
I have been doing it for years, but don't have much online (anymore).
This is a stealth game I made in a week, haven't had the chance to complete it because of school.
PLAY IT HERE!
This game requires DirectX 9
I'll start posting more.

I just retopologized my Birdman for the surreal video. this one doesn't have to morph, so I was able to cut back on the geometry. If I got rid of the smooth version of the pants, it would be a near game ready model! I cannot wait to animate him. I'm hoping to have the video done this week, but I wont post it here until I show it in school in about a month :(
