While working at Artificial Mind and Movement, we were given the opportunity
to create some promotional marketing videos for Electronic Arts to help build
the hype of their soon to release IP, My Sims Sky-Heroes. They wanted
two video shorts, software rendered, that were spoofs based off of the
Predator and Aliens movie's, but with the Aliens version
incorporating some design elements from EA's Dead Space brand. Here I will showcase
the Alien spoof version to save bandwidth. With the help of my producer
and manager I had our IT set us up a seven node render farm that I could manage
remotely and command line render on. My other responsibilities for the shots were: assembly, pass management,
lighting and lighting effects, fog effects, and particle effects. I also composited
the final shot for the Aliens spoof in Autodesk Toxik/Composite.
