Here are some animation frames from shots I completed at Blur in February 2012 for the Far Cry 3 Game Cinematic.

Environment Modeling

I created the environments for the gun shack and the village which were used in 10 shots in the cinematic. I used a combination of existing components and elements I modeled to create shacks, furniture and debris scattered around the village. I used the landscape palette provided by the shows CG lead, Greg Keggel, to populate my village and mountain backgrounds. I worked closely with the CG Supervisor, Heikki Antilla to create environments that fit the art direction and story.

Look development

I was fortunate enough to be involved in the look development process for my shots as well. Working under the direction of the CG sup, I was able to define my lighting approach, render passes, compositing methods and color grading for the shots shown here.

Lighting, Compositing, and Scene Assembly

Once all of the assets from the other departments at Blur were approved (Characters, Animation and FX assets) I assembled the shots, implemented client notes, rendered and composited the 8 shots I was assigned for the Show. I also helped out on some other shots, but the images here I was most responsible for.

Tools and Team

Heikki and Greg were really instrumental in helping me find my way on my first Show at Blur. Thanks Dudes!!! I was glad to work in company with such a huge Talent Pool. I used 3dsMax, Vray, Fusion, Photoshop, Gen Arts Sapphire, Forest Pack Pro and lots of other stuff in my workflow.
