Tiki Lounge was a really fun promotional piece I helped create in 2000 with Kerry Pierce, Kirk Kelley, and Barry Bruce while at Will Vinton Studios. It features 4 CG objects that were inserted among real objects on a tabletop set filmed with a motion controlled camera move.
I had the pleasure of texture painting and doing look development for all 4 CG objects, also did the match move & lighting for one of the objects. The tagline was, "Can you tell which are real, and which are cg?"
This project was done with Lightwave, DeepPaint 3D, and Photoshop. Circa BUV (before uvs)
