Latest Update: Finished Video: Graywolf Trailer - Full length version


Hello guys

We are participating as a team in the video category, do we still post in the same forum? (i mean right here? ).



Hi everyone! :wavey:

        Amir has asked me to breathe some life back into this thread and I'll attempt to keep the updates rolling through the remainder of the challenge. :)
    As Amir has posted earlier, we are entering as a team, and our efforts are geared towards the submission of a film trailer in the "flashes of iconic imagery" style, featuring the integration of live action and CG/VFX.
        Most of our team members are animation and film students at the SAE Institute in Dubai, UAE. We anticipate varying levels of contributions from our team members; from the singular production of minor assets to more expansive and multifaceted work - we intend to spread the load across as many willing and able-bodied individuals as we can afford in order to meet the requirements of our shot list (to be posted shortly).
      We see this challenge first and foremost as a learning opportunity and look forward to sharing our work in progress as well as regularly keeping up with all the great work being produced by the other teams. :)

Hey, thanks for the interest guys! :slight_smile:

This is the first time that any of us are attempting anything of this sort… hopefully we will learn a lot along the way and we’ll be sure to keep this thread updated as much as we can.

We had another shoot today and I’ll post details and images a little later. Also coming up will be updates on the 3D assets.

Best regards, Varun


Looks very good guys. Can’t wait to see more.
