Description:


    The adventures of an office employee who goes searching for some comfort on his Kit-Kat break and is suddenly transported on a mysterious quest.

    In this film, we had to create some very stereotypical characters with morphologies that fitted their personalities. The goal was to make the adventures of our hero in the different situations as powerful as possible. Technically, the focus was on the animation and especially facial animation, with very elaborate rigging. In parallel, the surface rendering was emphasized to make it both realistic, by using subsurface scattering for the skin, and aesthetic, by using a cartoony range of colors.

    3ds Max, V-ray, Z-Brush, After Effects
