Best Of Festival Award Won By KPMG Film Post-Produced By Concrete
The challenge of the "KPMG-earth sequence" was to animate a pullout from a stylized bank building in Malaysia, which then zooms out to a wider dramatic shot of the earth to gain a global perspective. Concrete's 3-D Graphics team textured a globe; significant architectural landmarks, like the London Eye and the Kremlin were added onto the countries and continents. The famous Rio de Janeiro Jesus was modeled and textured by 3-D Graphic Artist at Concrete Christian Jelen. He also added trees and vegetation using Paint effects and then converted them into polygons using instances. Fluid effects were used to create realistic clouds. Stylized lighting was included to accentuate the globe and to ensure that the buildings and trees cast interesting depth map shadows using Maya Software render. Mental Ray was also used to animate, light and texture various doors throughout the film.
The film was cut by Matt Hall and Guy Morley in Concrete's AVID Adrenaline suites. Senior online editors David Cox and Chris Gilbert post-produced the film using SGO's Mistika Post Production System, grading the film in HD.
The film was shown internally at industry and KPMG conferences worldwide as part of their graduate recruitment drive for 2008, as well as streamed on their global careers website.
