This film was done for a proposed development in Istanbul, Turkey, showing location, ideas, design and experience of the spaces within.
Directed by Nick Taylor of Squint Opera it shows a local fisherman encountering an ocean liner en route to the new seaport development which grows out of the water before his eyes, before he samples what this new island has to offer.
The team at Squint Opera (http://www.squintopera.com) include:
Lead 3D: James Shaw
3D Team: Steven Fayers, Dan Fells, Bruce Garnham, Nic Hamilton, Jack Hunter
Lead Compositing & Grading: Rory Lowe
Motion Graphics: Jack Hunter, James Merry
We experimented with many different aspects of animation in this sequence including using an alpha version of the Pheonix water simulator (seen in the aerial view of the development coming out the water and boats punching out the water in the apartment construction sequence).
It was made with 3DSMax, VRay, Pheonix, After Effects, NukeX and FinalCut.
