We've recently completed a TVC style video for our upcoming short film 'Broken Toy'. This is great work by Daniel Miller and the team. You can follow the film with the newsletter on the 'Broken Toy' website (scroll down to the bottom of the landing page).
Despite the UK lockdowns, we've managed to create a proof of concept for the short film that we will be shooting, as well as a sign of things to come from potential feature film ideas. Really exciting stuff when you can translate it from a script onto the small/big screen.
Check out this article Daniel wrote for Raindance that goes into a bit more detail about the world of VFX, with a view of the Mikkei TVC.
Special thanks to Chaos Group for donating usage of their Chaos Cloud Render Farm to complete the TVC as well as letting us use their Vray for Houndini. I don't think we could have done it so quickly without their support!
Here's to the future of 'Broken Toy'. Unfortunately Mikkei isn't available to buy from your local store (we all wish the toy was!!). Nonetheless, please do sign-up to the mailing list if you want to follow our journey to continue bringing Daniel's world to life.
