Hinge Digital Animates Forest Creatures for Integrated Campaign
"The creative process on this project ran smooth. BVK came up with the initial concept but gave us the freedom to design these characters and bring them to life in an interesting way that would translate across the campaign; it was pure magic," said Hinge Digital VFX Supervisor Michael Kuehn. "When you run through dailies with a client and receive a genuine positive, passionate reaction to the characters you've worked so hard to create, that's a great feeling."
BVK Art Director Ryan Smith shared, "Hinge Digital offers the right mix of creative talent, artistry and technology that this sort of campaign requires. They were there for us throughout the entire creative process and played an integral role in developing loveable, believable characters that carry this campaign."
Hinge Digital leveraged a variety of technology throughout the project including proprietary plug-ins, Maya for 3D animation, Shave and a Haircut, Mari for 3D painting, Nuke for compositing, Mudbox and ZBrush for modeling, headus UVLayout, mental ray and SquidNet for rendering, as well as Shotgun, Revolver, Tweak RV and cineSync.
