“Project Falcon” as we call it in our studio, is a result of cooperation with young, Canadian director – Jared Pelletier who is responsible for creating a short movie, basing on a very popular video game (check the Facebook page for more details).
Our studio has been chosen for creating the aircraft models, which would be later composed into both the CG animation and live action footage.
A few weeks later Cycles has been released. We decided to try building our studio’s pipeline basing on this new renderer. The result is a very short, teaser like animation with the Falcon model.
While making the shot, we’ve also created a tutorial about the modeling stages of the whole aircraft and created a separate website, where you can find all the materials and also the model itself for your own tests and use! Please check our website.
Also there’s a BlenderArtists thread with additional details.
