The Staves - Winter Trees


Texturing, Shading, Lighting, Rendering and Precomp of 22 shots with a tight deadline of 3 weeks. Lighting & Rendering done with V-Ray.


This project was a huge achievement given the time constraints and technical challenges involved. From a lighting & rendering perspective, the project was made more tricky for me because I only had 40 farm blades to render 3.40 minutes of fully CG animation. This meant that my scenes had to be heavily optimised in order to render over 100,000 frames in time.
