3December: An Evening with Blur Studio

This year's annual 3December event features an evening with Blur Studio: The Cinematic Pipeline for WARHAMMER ONLINE. Join Gnomon and Autodesk in welcoming an extraordinary line-up from Blur Studio for an informative evening presentation on the cinematics for the incredibly popular WARHAMMER ONLINE. Blur will discuss how they approached this cinematic compared to the first one they did for the same game two years earlier. How they used mental ray for their first large scale cinematic, as well as how they approached the very rough bullet points Mythic Entertainment wanted to show in the piece to go from script, storyboards, animatic to final renders.

RSVP at the Gnomon School website.


Jerome Denjean CG Supervisor Moderator and the thread between all the different presenters. Chuck Wojtkiewicz Concept Art Supervisor Chuck will be talking about how he took the script and did all the storyboards. Sze Jones Character Modeling Supervisor Sze will do "a making of" her Dark Elf model. Jon Jordan Hair and Cloth Supervisor Jon will do a breakdown of how he deals with cloth and hair simulations, using a couple problem shots as examples. Kris Kaufman Lead Scene Assembler Kris will talk about the challenges of the two opening shots. How he dealt with the crowds and how he assembled, lit, rendered and composited everything. Brandon Riza Visual Effects Supervisor Brandon will explain how he supervised the massive amount of FX in Warhammer, how he automated some tasks so he could focus on the hero shots, and more. He'll do a breakdown of a couple of those hero shots.
