Melted Ego "Fragments of Paradise"

Postby yacoob on 02/11/2014, 3:06 am

No finger exercise, but a megaton of work and computing time: In his second life as a robotics engineer our very own Mr Timo von Wittken - Sehsucht's lead 3D artist and thoroughbred headbanger - brought this steel monster of an independent music video to life.

Guided by the hard rock guitar riffs of his band 'Melted Ego' Timo (aka Optimo Prime) and an elite division of 24 senior CG masterminds from all over Germany assembled the 'Fragments of Paradise' to convey the songs disturbing vision of an uncertain future in a large-scale cgi video project.

270 shots, 14,000 hours of rendering time and one hell of iron will. The will that Timo always brings in at ease ... We are proud and impressed.
