October 2010

Hurricane Films Project – October sees the start of a long term project with Liverpool based film company. From our end the project is lead by SparkleVFX and SouthernGFX will provide lots of the 3d content and assets.

From the SPARKLE/VFX BLOG. We’ve been a little quiet recently… and for good reason. This week saw the start a monumental project with Liverpool based Hurricane Films, although we can’t reveal too many details at the moment we can mention that the project will last 3 months and exist in Liverpool for the next 10 years!!, there’ll be a few Hard Days in the Sparkle* office as it all gets a little Helter Skelter.

ZBrush Training – We supplied 2 weeks of 3D modelling training to a Brackley based studio, ‘Design by touch‘. We’ve worked with these guys on a number of commissions and it was great to do some in-house training with the whole team. The first week was basic sub division training using Silo3D and we followed that with some ZBrush sculpting and texturing.
