This week, we build a low polygon version of the Empire State building in Maya, then add some destruction with the PullDownIt plug-in. Finally, we texture using a photo and render out for after effects with mental ray.

This is beginners tutorial, with very basic modeling, and could be a good introduction for people who are wondering how 3d modeling works and how visual effects for films are created.

You can see how to install the PullDownIt plug-in here

The trailer for the series is here
