Demo Reel 2009

Still working on some animations for this thing, but this is what I have so far.


Water using Maya nParticles... really should have tried to figure out realflow.

Force Feild Shader

this was a project from my 3D Visual FX class, I think it came out a little weird, I may go back into it and fix it up with some fluid or particle effects or something.


Magic Effect using Maya 3D Fluid Effects and particle effects.

Campfire using Maya 3D fluid effects and nparticles for the smoke. still needs a bit of fixing up though, I need to adjust the rate of the smoke to and add in the the "sparks" from the fire... and of course I would like to go back and texture everything.

Caveman Project

Untitled from Travis Fruci on Vimeo.

Just a very short clip from the 3D Studio Production project I was apart of a few quarters ago. Big thanks to Brian who did an amazing job with the lighting and rendering, and Jorge for just being all around awesome, and of course everyone else on the team, I'm still amazed we made a complete animated short in less then 11 weeks.

see the whole short here

Here is my Compositing Project I did a few quarters ago. I would like to state that I am not trying to promote Apple or any of their products. It was a requirement of the assignment

My first Character Model..... the second one was.... not so good.

hmmm.... it takes a long time for video to upload any way this animation still needs some clean up work but I like how it's coming along.

so I was in class and my friend got on my case for not posting in.... 3 months? eh I didn't know anyone read this thing.

OK so here we go. This first post is just a few of my older more traditional works from some of my fundimental classes. Thank you John Harper one of the best art teachers I've ever had the privilege to learn from.

Perspective sketch in Horton Plaza. I used cool gray prismacolor markers and a black pen
