In cooperation with advertising agency Categorie1.com I created this animation for Questore. They wanted to use an animation which would explain their fund in a nutshell. This can be used as an intro for a presentation or as a standalone animation in a stand. A voiceover will tell you all the main things you need to know about the product.
The story is told in an abstract and metaphoric way. Simple forms are used to symbolize certain aspects of investments. They purple/magenta object can be seen as the investment. This investment gets eaten by a black blob which represents the so called 'black box' etc.
Thanks for watching my animation! I did it in order to teach myself Cinema 4D and Vray in my spare time, the renders aren't perfect but the best I could get out of my machine. While I setup up most of the geometry using tracers, Xpresso and Thinking Particles, I had some help along the way from the following great resources...
I edited the motion captures from this archive >>> https://sites.google.com/a/cgspeed.com/cgspeed/motion-capture and used Microsoft Kinect for some parts aswell
I tweaked the character models from >>> http://thefree3dmodels.com/
Sound effects we're mostly sourced from >>> http://www.freesound.org
And the music is obviously from Capcom's Street Fighter 2, play it here >>> https://itunes.apple.com/ie/app/street-fighter-ii-collection/id459660048?mt=8
