Sneak peek

Its been a busy year so far at ANALOG - with a move to a larger studio space, many commercials and visual effects projects and a lot of international shoots attended.

Squeezed in between all the official works - almost 10 years after myself and co-writer Alex Burton first came up with the idea - a project is developing that I hope will be ready in time for display at Siggraph next year.  Its literally a monster of an undertaking - with many terabytes of fluid and ocean simulation already committed to disk and a frail old man standing between oceanic titans and destruction.....
Heres a few images from data & work in progress so far.

Robinsons Commercial

The studio recently completed work on a Robinsons Squash/Juice drink commercial and here is a little making of/breakdown.
Alot of RD went into creating the look the director was after - though much of the finer details and elegance of the fluid effect itself was lost in the choppy editing style.  This making of shows a number of RD tests for fluid entering and dispersing within water.
FumeFX was the primary fluids tool for simulating the orange, with additional 2D fluid simulations from Maya and stock footage elements.
