Hello everyone, it's a pleasure to be with you all here! Here is our entry for this contest with our graduation movie directed by Hugo Trenoras, Quentin Marsollier, Thibaut Sertin and Vincent Larcher. It was a real challenge to do this in 8 months for our last year but we hope you will like this !
FINN is a short movie based on the scandinavian universe, it tells the story of a viking which participate every year in the mythical beast hunting contest.
He failed every time and never killed one of them ( Bear, Dragon etc... ). He is the laughing stock of the Vikings, but this year could be a game changer...
Our character breaks all of viking codes. Finn is a courageous viking who never stays on his defeats, he knows how to surprise by his imagination.
To create a circlefamiliar to our character, we designed a lot of very significant objects like Knarr, Horn and more...
The Knarr was designed and respected the global shapes of Knarr and Drakkar. We also added a funny mechanism on it to add a cartoon side.
Bobby is a living fish of the Ice Fjords. Not used to crossing man in his surroundings, he is very calm in nature and escaped danger.
Despite his gigantic size, he does not face his fears.
The Tordenskjold is a mythical fish living in the abyss.
When it rises to the surface it can be hidden in an icy environment thanks to his dorsal ice spikes.
During our short film, we realized that we wanted smaller and quite fun fish.
We took the design of the other two character models, then created a smaller size with a different morphology and textures.
This map allowed us to situate ourselves in the environment as well as to create the adventure of our characters.
The team wanted to put forward the best composition possible to bring the action of our short movie.
Black & White
In order to better integrate our character in the Scandinavian universe, we had to understand the ice shaders, their shapes and also their characteristics.
The R&D period is extremely important because during this period we have to test each effect that will be used in the film.

CHARACTERS & ENVIRONMENTS
It was a real challenge to model this character because we never created a character and even less with this kind of morphology.
Following the pre-production we just had to build the objects and the environment.
When the beauty render come out and the other images, we retrieve them in order to edit the image sequences and to create harmony between each camera shots.
