A long time with no post for a good reason, I was completely crawling under work doing my last direction for the “Nespresso variations” website.
It’s about pieces of animations that illustrate the “magical univers” of nespresso’s cap factory.
The project was commisionned by "Soleil Noir", a large website company based in Paris, currently working on the communication of the Nespresso's caps special christmas edition.
We did about 3 minutes of full 3D animation based on the early "Soleil Noir's ideas", using the now known Maya/mental ray’s pipeline we used to use at Chez Eddy.
Thanks to Chez Eddy, it was an incredible opportunity for me to think a whole univers for a reknown brand. Doing first all the concepts, following with the direction and the cg/lighting supervision, it was a huge challenge to pack it in three months. Thanks to an amazing team (about 12 different cg artist), this project would stay for me one the most challenging and entertaining.
hope you enjoy.
