Adventure / Fantasy movie - rendered with Cryengine and 3ds max

Tag Line :

A couple of teenagers decide to go on a trip in their final days of summer holiday. But their innocent little trip turns into something else when they discover something beautiful beyond words and terrifying at the same time

straight render, no color corection :


Most of the pictures below (in the first 2 pages) are old and obsolete, but left here for historical purposes :)

higher resolution

This will be short movie, made with the help of the Crysis editor, along with other software like 3ds max, compositing software ..and so on.

The screenplay is an original idea, and is in fact an adaptation of a book.The voice actors are almost cast. It will also feature custom sound effects and music.

If anyone wanna join feel free to email.

A small update. A teaser in HD 720p on youtube. Don't forget to press the HD button. The quality of the encoded HD video came up very nice.

I will use the Crysis characters as much as possible, even tough my characters from the screenplay are younger. But I applied some retouching here and there.

Some "make-up" . Also I made the eyelash longer. I painted the whole face but most visible is some darkening on face and the lips are changed.

Update. These are just low res pictures from viewport. Not final renders.

Looks great. Are you using the crysis engine for everything? Maybe give some details of what your using etc so we can give critique. Looks like a fun project.

Looks stunning, keep it coming! : )

Re-opened per request.

Thank you Kirt.

The project is not abandoned. I will never abandon this project . It's just going slow because of all kinds of (paid) side projects.


I'm using multiple techniques for this movie (just like most movies today are made)

These pictures are not 3d. I'm hoping they match the feeling and color scheme of the cryengine renders.

And these are cryengine renders (unfinished) :

Your work looks truly amazing and I am very impressed!
I just wish I could see that little gif animation as a full HD video!

Thank you, and you will definitely see the full HD final animation. If you don't forget about this thread! by the time I will finish the project.

This is astounding! It looks so good. This is still CE2?

Thank you, and yes it's still cryengine 2. And I'm hoping I can improve the quality and the lighting still.
