The Mill+ team collaborated with Lovestone Film to create a formidable CGI Bull developed fully in Cinema4D promoting Prefa's weather-wearing tiles
Here we see a fully CGI bull created by the Mill+ team entirely
in Cinema4D battling the harsh weather elements. The concept was to
create a bull covered in tiles which was representative of the
aforementioned product, displaying the strength and durability of
Prefa's tiles in all weather types including snow, ice, wind and
The team captured these elements on a live action shoot using a 3D
printed bull which enabled them to re-create the scene back in the
studio finessing how each condition could look when impacting the
CG model. A range of techniques was utilised in-house making full
use of the design, CGI and Nuke teams to seamlessly and effectively
bring together each element.
Animation director Nils Kloth comments, "I'm incredibly proud of
what we were able to achieve with this project solely in Cinema4D.
We decided to comp the ad in Nuke and keep all the 3D in Cinema as
this allowed us creative flexibility and a quick turnaround. We had
a team of three people working on and off on the CG development and
one lead Nuke artist with some helping hands on the side ensuring
that the work flow was fast and efficient and that we got the best
possible results out of the final piece."
