Software: After Effects

this is how our trailer begins!

a steampunk Jerusalem, in a world where coal and steam won their battle against oil and gas…

still a work in progress, though.

we have to complete a couple of models and animations and paint some more textures…
we also need to balance lights and composition, so that the sign “jerusalem coal ltd.” becomes the focus of the image.

what do you think?

just finished the animations and materials for the first robot, I will upload them as soon as we have the renders!

I forgot to mention that the music for the “making of” is from the original motion picture soundtrack of “300” by tyler bates.

the score for our trailer and the final video was written and executed specifically for this challenge by carlos zarattini, a member of our team.

soon the final upload, we are running out of time!



hey folks,
you can find a higher quality “making of” here:

(still testing new ways to upload, sorry. I’m worried for the final one… :slight_smile: )

ok guys, that’s it.
This is what we did in our spare time and long sleepless nights during the month of january, while we were busy keeping Bonsaininja Studio, our dayjob, alive. We entered this challenge very late, it has been really hard but we’re very happy with what we did. Some of us were deeply involved since the beginning, others came helping in the last few days while this little bugger was coming to life. We want to thank everybody for all the efforts they put in this madness, hoping there will be more to come…

We’ve also seen a lot of inspiring stuff and incredibly gifted artists in this challenge, great videos guys, really. Hope you are going to like ours, and good luck to you all for the contest!

The music playing during the “making of” is an exceprt from the motion picture soundtrack of “300” by Tyler Bates.
