So here it is...our own short animated film that we've been working on in-between paid work for the last 8 months. Aimed at showing our clients our creativity and production capabilities, this short and incredibly dark, animated, fairy tale centres on a modern re-imagining of the mythical bogeyman creature, that has in many cultures been used by adults to frighten children into obedience. We went about the production as we would any other game cinematic, advertising or broadcast job for our clients. Starting with script writing, character/environment concepting and storyboarding as part of the pre-visualisation stage, we then built and animated everything in 3D, including the characters that were carefully sculpted in great detail in Zbrush. Modelling and animation were undertaken in 3Ds Max and rendered in Vray. Nuke and Fusion were used for composting and various other software, including Naiad, were used for the effects.
