Thumbs up Warhammer 40,000 Cinematic - Interview with Blur

Hi all,

I recently interviewed Dave Wilson and Paul Taylor from Blur Studio on the making of the Warhammer 40,000 cinematics. This is a very exclusive article and I'm excited to be able to share it with all of you, along with some exclusive footage showing the progressions, and the whole cinematic.

>> Making of Warhammer 40,000 Cinematics <<

Thanks to Dave and Paul for the interview - I know how busy you guys are and am so grateful that you could take some time out to put this together. Also a big thanks to Lisa Thurston, our Assistant Editor, as always for doing a great job editing and putting the article together.

I hope that you all enjoy it!

PS: You need to be a registered CGTalk member to watch the full cinematics on CGFilms.

Leonard Teo

One of the best game cinematics I've ever seen, and even more incredible when you consider the short time period they made it in.
Great work as always from Blur.

Great stuff indeed, always interesting to know more behind-the-scenes. Kudos again CGN.

I loved this cinematic the first time I saw it. Simply awsome work from our friends at Blur.

Leo, I gotta say, you are really on the ball with these interviews. That was a very fast turn around and a great read. Thanks!

-Dave

Finally!!! You can watch it without the demo installed! Is it me, or is it more gore-y? Man, the highres stills look awesome.

Keeper.

Awesome interiview, and not only was it an awesome interview the game cinematic was also one of the greatest I have ever seen. It is so nice to get the inside scoop on the production of a cg cinematic. The things that go wrong the things that work out perfectly, it is always eductational. My hat goes off for Blur Studios they did a tremendous job.

Smile Awesome interview, thanks Leonard

Very good interview, very informative from start to finish, I really am a Warhammer 40k Fan, from concept, to novels and books to the game itself. With the time frame Blur had and the final result presented is simply amazing.........amazing.

I love the informal style of the answers too. No press-release crap, just people telling us how they love to work. Great read!

I drug anyone and everyone around over to my machine to see this short when the demo for this game first came out.

Amazing work.

ok - that was really cool. I could watch an hour of that. Just to bitch a little though - why would the Orcs attack entrenched machine gunners with axes and hammers? Oh well, that's not much to gripe about.
