Here are some frames from an environment model I completed at Blur in November 2012 for the Bioshock Infinite Game Cinematic.
I started from building models created for a previous bioshock cinematic. My assignment was to take the lower resolution assets and recreate high resolution detailed versions of these buildings. I created several windows, corbels and other architectural details in Zbrush and added all of the fine detail needed for the 2k show. I also created several banners and flags using cloth simulation in 3ds Max. Lastly, I created new shaders for all of the assets.
As an Environment/Lighting/Compositing lead on the show, I was tasked with creating different looks and Lighting conditions during look development. I explored different times of day, weather condition’s and subtle shifts in grading. I also setup atmospherics and lens effects. Look Development is always my favorite part of the show.
