CINEMA 4D BASECAMP by Animate www.animade.tv
When School of Motion asked London-based animation studio Animade to create a short intro to its new course, Cinema 4D Basecamp, the studio used a mountaineering theme to illustrate the idea of learning how to use 3D elements.
“We threw some ideas around and decided to go for a 3D character-led piece with a nod to the 80s,” recalls senior creative Milo Targett. “We wanted the UI of the 3D software to feature in the environment physically, so we could see the character grappling with new tools.”
After successfully creating a Plasticine-like handmade feel, the team worked on fine-tuning the pacing of the piece and fitting it with the music. “I think in the end all the effort on the animatic paid off,” says Targett. “The snake capturing scene is one of my favourites. And the avalanche run, since physics simulations are always a laugh.”
