This is 1 of 4 CapitalOne projects I worked on while at EightVFX. For this spot my responsibilities included:
-Creating the deconstruction effect in MASH from scratch and I was in charge of teaching the other artists how to use the MASH network in their scenes
-sh010 animated the deconstruction effect of the old bank in MASH, I then created a destruction cache file which was used by another artist for Shot-02
-Rendered all passes
-In Shot-04 when the actor is entering the cafe, I animated the flip effect on the walls and sign, also on the alternate version, I placed the cg table, chairs and umbrella and rendered them and the flip. In addition, I animated the sign geo to match the plate.
-Layout of the geo and other miscellaneous work
My responsibilities for this spot included the following:
-Rendering of the FX particles for Shot30, Shot40 and Shot50
-Created the original MASH network used to break up the geo, then helped other artists with questions on how to apply it to this scene.
-Started the layout scene of the interior bank at the beginning of the project
-Modeling simple props and camera setup for the initial layout
-Matched transformations of some geo with new updated geo
-Re-meshed some of the letters so they could be used with the MASH network
-Other miscellaneous work
Another cool spot and great team. For this project my duties included:
-The reversed engineering of a MASH setup that was provided and creating my own setup for the build up effect, and I was in charge of helping other team members with questions of the MASH network
-Shot 05 – Created and rendered the background layers, including a caustics pass. Additionally, rendered the old bank and the beauty of the new bank
-Shot 06 – I created and animated the FX buildup and animation of the walls and props, including chairs, tables and floor. Each FX Flip reveal has two layers. I did not work on the animated lines, that’s another layer created by another artist. I also rendered and re-meshed the cafe walls and interior props geo so that they could be used with the MASH setup
-Shot 08 – Rendering of the props, re-meshed the old bank for the MASH network
-I also created all the render layers for my shots(05, 06, 08) and worked with the compositor by providing additional renders needed. Additionally, created animation caches for the chairs, tables and umbrella, which other artists used in other scenes.
