Here’s a project I collaborated on this November – I was brought on as a 3D environment modeler, so essentially I created the set and handled the lighting. I was also a rendering consultant, and I modified the base model (which was purchased on Turbosquid) to create the green elf and the red elf. Oh yeah, I also created and rigged the lantern.
I worked with two animators, one who worked at our project manager, and the other who animated the elves. They were an awesome team and it was fantastic working with them!
The final video will be projected on a giant screen at a golf course for a Christmas lights ‘sit in your car and drive through’ show, if that makes any sense
Here are some previous renders – the set had to be modified to accommodate the screen itself changing:
And here is a rough character render for the green elf/lantern approval:
