Techno Image created a CG short film for the "Trojan Horse was a Unicorn" festival.
The Concept

After Techno Image visited the first "Trojan Horse was a Unicorn", they were invited to illustrate the poster and develop the animation for the next edition.

The storyboard defined the main shots and from there the team produced an animatic.
Warrior character design with movie references.
The Production

There were a total of 8 million objects on the scene. Maxwell helped ease the project due to the perfect outdoor environment lighting.

Models were done using 3D Max for the base brush.
ZBrush was used for details. Rigging and animation were done in Maya.
The project was rendered in NextLimit's Maxwell Render. It took about 2-6 hours per frame to render the sequences.

Final touches were added useing Multi-Light feature for the lightning. A dust and fog pass was added and finished with final color grading. Overall, Techno Image brought a brand new mascot to this years event with a brand new energy and design.
