Well, finished yesterday. The Trailer for the FantasyFilmfest 2007 in Germany has been finished by my company Magna Mana Production GmbH. Stop-Motion combined with CGI Elements. All puppets were build by hand in many weeks of hard work by our Stop-Motion Team from Weirdoughmation.
There will be no complete movie with these puppets, etc. All elements were produced for this trailer only.
I used ZBrush3 for most objects in the background. Rendering was done with Vray and 3dsmax8. Compositing was done in Digital Fusion5.
The puppets were shot in front of green and bluescreen panels - i will add some plates and more background-information later !
So, here is our trailer in 1280*720 small HD resolution as quicktime or windowsMedia9 HD.
