New Project - Grand Piano feature film
Grand Piano is a Spanish thriller film produced by Adrián Guerra and Rodrigo Cortés ( Buried ), directed by Eugenio Mira and starring Elijah Wood and John Cusack. The film premiered at Fantastic Fest on September 20, 2013, was open the 46th edition of the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia on October 11, 2013, a few months later Grand Piano was release in Spain theatres and in U.S. theatres on March 7, 2014.
This time I worked for LampPost VFX, under the supervision of Alex Villagrasa ( vfx supervisor ) and Kepa Casado ( cg supervisor ) in the "key mech" part, a sequence where we can see the interior of the Grand Piano and the connected mechanism with the gears system and the safe box.
My role was to modelling, texturing, shading & lighting the sequence, also designing the gears system and safe box. In the look development process we working specially in the atmosphere, which was very important because this sequence is a critical moment in the end of the film : )
I really enjoyed this project, studying the interior of the Grand Piano and how works the keys system, working with the lighting & shading in a realistic style, all the look development process...
You can view my look dev. lighting & shading reel of Grand Piano and more stuff like the shot breakdown, look dev. process stills and clay renders in my Grand Piano page.
Hope you like it ;)
New Project - Bubble Bip Animated TV Serie
My role as a look development lighting & shading artist, was to work very closely with the art department to find a way to keep the graphic look and feel from the 2D concepts in the 3D process.
One of our goals was don't finish with a typical cg look, this was very important to consider some limits in the possibilities of the shading and the complexity of the lighting, the graphic shapes from the facil setup helped to get this style.
