3D Environment building is not my strongest point in the pre-production pipeline, but I’m definitely willing to give it a go. First, I needed to layout how the interior of the house is going to look like. I had an idea of the layout as I was drawing out storyboards, but I need something to reference to once I start laying out my cameras.

Because the short only focuses on the Living Room, the Home Entrance, and Room 01 for the end of the short, I decided that I do not need to build anything in the kitchen. And because I need to build everything to scale, my small background in AutoCAD came in handy as I was measuring and laying everything out.

You can’t have a household without various assets that accompany it, right? So I compiled a list of the interior and exterior assets I need to build and a set of reference pictures.

And to top it off, the living room is almost complete.

There’s still a lot to be done, but things will go into high gear once my other classes are complete by the end of this month.
