Generalist Reel 2012
Generalist reel for 2012.
00:05: Wolf-bot: Design of robot, all 3D elements (not particles). I supervised the mocap shoot, baked the data to a rig and cleaned it up. All lighting comes from final gather from the background sphere. We used a 3D workflow between Maya and After Effects.
00:17: Palace: I cleaned up / re-created the Basic layout from a Sketchup model then made all details, statues, furniture, greenery etc. Modelling was done in Silo, Maya and zBrush. Growing vine bushes made with Xfrog. Rendered in Mental Ray. I also did the initial comp in After Effects.
00:30: Wirly glowing shape: Made in Silo/Topmod, animated in Softimage and rendered with Thea Render before comping in After Effects.
00:34: Naked Mole Rat type creature: Made in Silo and zBrush. Rendered in Maya with Mental Ray.
