Star Trek Lego – Kirk vs Gorn

Well, here is my first foray into animating in Maya. The assignment was to take our Lego project from last year and animate it. Since I did Star Trek Legos for that project (something that is sorely missing from the Lego Universe) I thought it would be fun to do a memorable scene from the original series. This is from the episode “Arena.” I assembled the image sequence and added audio in Adobe After Effects. Kirk’s hair and the Gorn’s head were sculpted in Mudbox.

I’m pretty happy with it. There are a couple of things that I would like to fix, which I’ll probably work on for our next assignment which is adding dynamics. I think I’ll just add them to this scene.

Lego Dudes

This was a fun project. The task was to model a Lego figure and place it in a scene in Maya. I decided to do one of my favorite franchises that has not yet been created in the Lego universe.

This is a scene from one of the greatest Star Trek episodes of all time, “The Trouble With Tribbles.”

Star Trek: The Experience

I recently went to Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas. Wow, that was really cool, and really brought out my inner geek.

Ok, so I’ll admit that my inner geek isn’t ever that far from the surface.

I’ve just heard that this attraction is scheduled to be closed in the fall. Bummer. I was really hoping to take my family there someday. It sounds like Paramount will likely try to find a new home for it somewhere. That would be nice.
