Stormbirds was one of the most enjoyable of our productions. I think the great thing with this one was it engaged on so many levels, the pre-vis was inspiring, the modellers were in their element, the environment guys loved the backgrounds, the animators got to create some cool moves and there’s even a nuclear explosion thrown in for good measure! What more could we ask for?
We probably had our strongest pre-vis so far on this one, the client had some really nice game design concepts and we just picked the best frames and developed them further.
