G’day & welcome to the Digital Lode!
My name is Michael Wentworth-Bell & I am a 3D generalist and Motion Graphics artist based in Melbourne, Australia. The ‘Lode‘ is my online website featuring my portfolio, blog, a ‘Motherlode’ of tutorials, project walkthroughs, personal projects & artwork. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to drop me a line via my blog or contact page. You can also checkout my LODE facebook page if you’d like to be notified when I update this site.

Some items from my portfolio:
A selection of recent projects from the LODE porfolio are shown below.
You can view the complete folio here.
Tony Robinson’s “London Games Unearthed” is a 60 minute documentary of East London’s history and the construction of the Olympic park in the lead-up to the 2012 Olympic games. I helped create and animate a 3D model of the 13 metre high Greek statue of Zeus, one of the ancient 7 wonders of the world.
The Bombing of Darwin Experience is an 11 minute long animated retelling of the morning of February 19th, 1942. It uses 3D animation, light, sound with re-animated photos from the actual day in order to give an immersive depiction of the Japanese bombing of Darwin.
Showreel Version 1
My current showreel is Coming Very Soon! I have not updated my site/reel in nearly 2 years. I’m now working on my showreel version 2.0 featuring my favourite projects over the past few years.
Showreel 2.0 is almost complete! In the meantime, you can view my 2011 Student Showreel below:
This showreel was created in December, 2011. For a look at my more recent work, please check out the portfolio section of this site!
The Reel Pictures Melbourne RealFlow Reel – I work at this studio as a 3D Animator. Here’s our first Fluid Simulation reel. All animation was created by Alf Kuhlmann (studio director) and myself.
