Honda

Here’s a beau­ti­ful look behind the scenes of the amaz­ing “Hands” Spot for Honda by Ana­log Stu­dio. The test-footage is espe­cially inter­est­ing, rev­el­ing such details as cus­tom 3D-printed mod­els for inter­ac­tion between the real actor and the 3D-models. It’s some fas­cin­at­ing stuff and any­one facing a com­plex VFX-project should def­in­itely check this out. let me see »

Making of Nissan Juke Treadmill

Some­times Car-TV-Commercials are com­plete 3D pro­duc­tions, some­times they are real foot­age with strong post­pro­duc­tion. Mik­ros image used the whole range of pro­duc­tion tools to bring a pretty unique vis­ion for Nis­san to life. Check out this break­down of their work on the Nis­san Juke Tread­mill spot.

How to tame your dragon

Check out this fant­astic VFX break­down of a dragon taming/catching scene from Korean VFX artist YUJAEHO. He com­bines Sof­tim­age and the Arnold ren­derer to great effect and his water and smoke sim­u­la­tions are noth­ing to scoff at either.

YASAK VFX BREAKDOWN

Enjoy these won­der­ful VFX break­downs for the movie Yasak by turk­ish stu­dio Geni­usPark. It’s nice work but the real kicker is the film­ing crew which looks exactly as turk­ish as you’d ima­gine. And they should, too, with beau­ti­fully exotic names like Berat Türk­bık­maz (CG & Comp. Supervisor).

MPC Fast & Furious 6 VFX breakdowns

I can only image the brief­ing for some of these shots: “Replace this com­pletely gen­eric street scenery with some other equally gen­eric street scenery!” It’s all look­ing rather splen­did, though.

Digital Snow by Disney Research

When I saw the first demo of Disney’s new snow sim­u­la­tion tech­nique I was quite astoun­ded. Now they released a whole present­a­tion video and the res­ults are mind­blow­ing. This is one of the most impress­ive pieces of tech­no­logy I’ve seen in a long time and it almost seems wasted on “Frozen”.

ABC Stout | Making Of

Enjoy this very well made break­down of the “ABC Stout” com­mer­cial pro­duced by White Chocol­ate stu­dios. I really like how it shows the whole cre­at­ive pro­cess from concept over pre­viz to the fin­ished spot.

 Gregory Chalenko - Full CG Compositing Showreel 2013

Do your renders and com­pos­it­ings look this good? Gregory Chalenko does not only a great job at com­pos­it­ing, he also knows how to present his work. This is one of the finest com­pos­it­ing showreels I’ve seen. It’s fas­cin­at­ing to watch how much cre­ativ­ity hap­pens dur­ing the com­pos­it­ing pro­cess, even when the renders are already top of the line.
