This cinematic was made in 3 days. The challenge was organized by CGTalk as an exercise for how much a single artist can do in 3 days. Although the final resolution is pretty low, and there were a thousand things I wanted to tweak, but this is all I could do in the given time. The theme was “ICE”. Although it was done as a weekend exercise, it’s great that it ended up winning the challenge.
The ludicrously fast GPU renderer Redshift & the handy Mixamo were crucial to finish this in 3 days.
