Short film I worked on w/ C4D on Wired's front page

This is a short film that was originally supposed to be all in-camera with quarter scale miniatures and puppets, but the director realized he couldn't direct the emotion he needed into the rod puppet, so he came to my studio to see what we could do in CG.

Long story short, we ended up doing CG robot for 95% of the shots in the film, and nobody noticed!

Great quote from Pajiba: "I honestly had no idea that 90% of HENRi was computer generated before watching the Making Of documentary, but the artists at Blufire Studios have done a masterful job of bringing the character to digital life without betraying his analogue roots. The combination of CGI and in-camera sets, rather than green screen, is seamless, perfect."

So, C4D and Vray for C4D!

I'll have to rent it. Looks like top notch work and nice to see Vray+C4D used in animation so well.

I should mention that the making of only shows Maya because I wasn't at the studio the day they came to film, and most of the shots were animated in Maya. Eventually we did get the rig over to C4D and some shots were done there, but everything beyond animation was done in C4D.
