    Wu Tang: Shaolin Style


Company / Institution / Agency:

  • Creat Studio, LLC


    Famous Wu-Tang Clan members try to rescue Master Xin and save the world from the evil Mong Zhu emperor while practicing their Wu Tang skills in America and China. The movies were created for the Playstation game Wu-Tang Shaolin Style, based on the rap group Wu-Tang Clan.

    All characters were created, animated, and rendered in Softimage 3D. A proprietary Mental Ray plug-in was used to create photo-realistic hair. A proprietary lipsynch tool was used for speech animation and facial expressions.
