Directed by Carl E. Rinsch, ‘The Gift’ Belongs to the "pararell Lines" Phillips Cinema campaning. Placed in Russia, The Gift is a Sci-Fi short with a savage Chase sequence on it. We made more than 20 full CGI shots for the short. Check out the animated pictures to see how it has been done. We also made the vechicles and some characters desings. We enjoyed creating such an unusual atmosphere and sense. Not the regular Sci-fi film we are used to see...
As the smoke clears from the epic battle, we venture through an array of monsters, machines, and their monumental feats. IF worked closely with the film's director Guillermo del Toro to present his colossal creations in stylistic fashion, combining macro-photography and a graphic novel aesthetic in stereoscopic 3D.

Hi, this video contains a collection of rendered tests I made during the last year. Everything is done with Autodesk Softimage (ICE) and rendered mostly with VRay for Softimage. Scene 6 and 17 are rendered with Arnold, 10 with Redshift Renderer, 16 with emRPC and 5 with Krakatoa in 3ds Max. The track “Chemosynthesis” is produced by Skyence aka Audionerve. Thanks for watching.
In the slums of the future, virtual reality junkies satisfy their violent impulses in online entertainment. An expert player discovers that the line between games and reality is starting to fade away. 3DAR’s latest short film explores the frightening potential of our next technological revolution.
