I was tasked with rigging industrial models of power tools to function exactly as they do in real life. The engineers from Dewalt would check my rigging over to make sure that all the modes, gears, clutches, hammers and shock absorbers moved as they should. Each model took about 2-4 days to convert from CAD and rig in xpresso; with the notable exception of the Screwgun which took more like 14 days. Well, I was in Brazil at the time...

A lone policeman walks through a deserted city; his mission is unclear, his fate; unknown. Based on Sixties architectural renderings, 20th century black-and-white street photography, a healthy dose of Akira and trying/failing to sidestep the current vogue for occult imagery in techno artwork, the entire video is made and rendered with Cinema 4D.
This is one of the products for the fully-CG spot we made with McCoy Meyer for UniquelyJ.com.
The packaging was not yet finalised, so this bottle was modelled based on reference photos, and the label, which was finalised, was exported as a 4K map from Illustrator.
Lighting and rendering was all Octane - with a 5-day turnaround and 6 products to feature, Octane became the go-to for fast client approval and gorgeous product visualisations that surpassed all of our expectations for such a tight deadline.
