PJ Lee of Asterisk Media approached Jeff Briant and I with a piece needed to show off Kobo's latest e-reader. We worked on a couple of boards to send to the client to sell the idea of a 3d product piece.
Once the storyboards were signed off, we to C4D's blazing fast Hardware Renderer and blocked out the pre-viz for the edit so we could start texturing and animating the final shots. Hard part: DONE! We now needed to find a render farm with Octane Render to help us through these shots with Octane and we found the wonderful folks at GarageFarm.Net. They shined beautifully and our shots were finished in record time.
We, of course, added a couple of tweaks back into this "directors cut" to make it more interesting.
