Modelling: The Finale, The Race to the Conductor

As a precursor to the big "Metropolis" reveal Red is joined by the citizens of this musical world in a frenetic dash to the Finale. In this section Red is deposited by a flock of birds and runs along a track whilst being accosted by the mischievous King on his Paladin. Compared to putting the Metropolis together this environment is stark, however it will be populated by a cornucopia of musical fellows which will, no doubt, steal the show.

YPGTTO: The Overture. Render and Shot Tests



Shots: 02,04,05,06,07,and 08

Here are few render tests for the Overture shots. In most cases these have been a successful (beyond play-blasting), to perhaps see in more detail how the shaders and colours work in motion.  I've not added any compositing to these shots, they are straight out of Maya, and they include an extra 48 frames bleed.
