Produced for Universal Pictures Visual Programming in conjunction with Los Angeles-based Creative Capers, the series will consist of twenty-six eleven-minute episodes that not only follow the misadventures of a hapless hero named Bill and his feather-brained cohorts, but also bring the gorgeous airbrush style of Bedard's famous poster illustrations to amazing three-dimensional reality.To tackle the enormous production output of a computer animated kid's show, Krislin/Elliot technical director Ryan Smith relies on the pipeline alliance of Discreet's compositing product, combustion and its 3D animation software, 3ds max. Smith explains that while models, animations and initial lighting passes are completed in 3ds max, they are then sent into combustion for visual sweetening and effects. Says Smith, Since going into full production in December, the combination of Discreet's combustion and 3ds max has greatly enhanced our workflow. For instance, Ryan explains that lighting can often be more realistically enhanced in the 2D, rather than the 3D, realm. For this show, we place a particular emphasis on lighting, carefully working with shadows, highlights and specularities in order to give the characters all the dimensionality of the original prints. Inside combustion's virtual 3D camera world, I can have objects move past the camera and light those objects as though they were volumetric. In one shot, our star duck Bill is seen running down a darkened street and we wanted to add a rim light as he ran by the camera. The easiest and most efficient way to create this photo-real effect was to take the shot inside combustion's toolkit and add 2D glints from there. Moving elements, or entire scenes, between the two products is pretty much child's play due to combustion's optimization of the Rich Pixel Format or RPF. Using RPF means we're able to render our scenes in one pass, and still have access to all of the information inside. Before RPF, we would have to break down our scenes to separate layers and rebuild them from their parts. For us it means we're seeing the complete image, while we are working, spending our time improving the scene instead of rebuilding it. combustion and 3ds max also prove their compatibility and power when it comes to integrating CG characters with props or backgrounds. As Smith reports, one of the most difficult jobs in computer animation production is marrying elements so that they appear to live in the same environment. In a recent episode, Smith and team created a convincing 2D effect for a 3D prop. One of the primary characters was sitting at a table dressed as a gypsy fortune teller. As she speaks, she's smoothes the wrinkles of the tablecloth. In combustion, we were able to create convincing animation of the wrinkles and smoothing using 2D filters. The final composite was then rendered and sent to Discreet's edit. Finally, Smith speaks to the speed of the overall pipeline created by linking Discreet software. If retakes are needed, they are easily completed within the combustion environment without the additional redo steps required by other competitive products. Says Smith, In a production-intensive animation environment, those kinds of seemingly small savings add up fast. For Universal and Krislin/Elliot Digital, Discreet solutions definitely have wings.All images (c) Universal Pictures Visual Programming 2001In the Humor posters and art print gallery at Print-and-Poster you can find your favourite Humor prints and posters.

He was the brother of William II and one of the only two sons that William I had. We do not know when Richard was born, we approximate it as 1689. We are presuming that he was younger than William I because he was listed after William in their father's will. Based upon the date his will was probated, he died shortly before January 19, 1745 in Worcester County, Maryland.He was married to Anne Collings, the daughter of Thomas and Anne Collings. This information comes from the will of Thomas Collings which states his dauhter's name as Anne Beddard (reference 2) and lists Richard Bedder as a witness.Judging from his will, Richard only had two children, both daughters. Their names were Leah and Jerasha. We have been able to find no evidence of other children and specifically no evidence of sons. For this reason, we can be sure that any Beathard descendants that are found later actually descended from William II.It is interesting that in his will, Richard left land, tobacco and money to a Benjamin Davis. We have no record to indicate the relationship between Richard and Benjamin Davis. Davis was not an in-law, he was married to a woman named Mary. They did have a daughter named Leah. It is of interest that Richard bought 150 acres of land from Samuel Davis.[Written by Gerald A.
