W.I.P. Of a short movie - The Brats -The Toys Thief

Hi All,

So I'd like to share with you the WIP of my Short Movie, it's gonna be about 13 minutes in length and we started (me and the Wife) doing it in January, it was about 2 Months to write the story and then in March I started the animation and she did some of the Modeling, but most of the work was done by me.

I will be updating this thread as days go by as we are in the Final Test Renders, I may post some short clips later on, but for now I'll be posting only stills .

All is done in Max, Rendered With Octane for Max and a bit of post work in AEffects.

So here is the 1st still, C&C Welcome, we hope to have the whole movie rendered in 2 Months time, there are Over 300 shots in it

Thx for watching

Nildo

Beautiful DOF on that still. Is this a narrative? What's the premise?

Good Morning All

Here's one more test render of the short, its a bit noisy, obviously the final render will have much higher quality..also we are replacing the grass texture of the ground floor with actually grass blades, sky is also temporary.
