Mundos Digitales 2014

Softimage to Houdini Transition Guides

Carlsberg : The Ride

I can safely say I have been waiting years for a job like this to appear in the radar, needless to say when we were awarded the job we were literally over the moon and we put all our love into it which hopefully is visible.

GStar : Destroy to Construct

This may have been one of the most difficult jobs I have done due to the nature of the deconstruction process and how complex is to make a system directable.

Reebok : Classics 30th anniversary

A brilliant little project I really did enjoy from start to finish, specially because it was 3D free and it was all about ingenuity and craft rather than trying to do 3D where we didn’t need to.
