Ubisoft is one of my newest clients. I have done several projects for them in 2011. This is a teaser for Castle Empire, made by the developers of The Settlers. One of the exciting yet challenging parts of this project was taking their huge library of 3D game assets and incorporating them into the spot. I am more of a Blender and Maya user whereas the game assets were 3DS. I ended up exporting tons of obj's from 3D Studio Max, importing them into Blender and relinking the textures. My favorite shot of this was the battle scene. It was fun to go full-on traditional for that swordsman.

Amazing compositing work here by Nathan Stevens. He can make anything happen!
