Hessische Rundfunk "frish film 12"
This is a small selection of some of the assets, and VFX created by Miguel Ortega and Tran Ma
for the short film "The Green Ruby Pumpkin" watch here: vimeo.com/51358765
The entire project was rendered on 7 computers, Running Maya for 3D, Mudbox for sculpting,
Mari and Mudbox for Texture Painting, Vray for rendering, Nuke for compositing. A lot of shortcuts had to be used in order to manage our render times Including 3d projections in nuke, miniatures, and practical elements.
The majority of the vfx work was just us two, however we had great help from friends on the rigging and animation side of things. We wanted to make sure everything you see on screen was designed and or fabricated by our team.
We learned a lot and hope to keep improving as storytellers and visual artists. Thank you for watching.
The animation tells the story about a little boy who meet a fox in a rainy day. The fox wants to collect water from the city, so little boy helps the fox with his plight and accidentally he found another world where is the little fox come from.
