Rollin’ Safari

You’re probably familiar with these hilarious shorts from some students at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg. But we thought we’d share them again to make sure no one missed their work. Too often we shoot for overly complex visuals (explosions and smoke, etc) when something clean and simple (with a good story and texture work) is often more effective and even more enjoyable. The animation, color, and shape here works well together and shows a good aesthetic design.

Hoping to see more from this group of artists in the future!

Rendered with mental ray through Mental Core, these show another side to rendering with mental ray that’s more cartoon and humor driven.
