Gray Wolf Movie Trailer

gw1_featured

Gray Wolf Movie Trailer is a project I managed for an online competition from Cgsociety.org. The CG Challenge no 24 had a topic called Secret Agent. Teams and individuals were invited to develop their visual effects or animated films portraying this topic. The project had a timeline of 3 months. I was at the time the senior animation lecturer at SAE Dubai. I assembled a team of nearly 20 people to work on the project. The team was divided into two groups, the film team and the vex team. The film team was mainly in charge of shooting the shots, finding locations and providing / handling the on-set recording equipments. The vfx team was in return in charge of 3D, effects, green screen keying and all the graphics work for the project. Working with a team of students I had the opportunity of working with a very committed team. Everyone was excited to learn and willing to go the extra mile. The downside however was the lack of experience. I remember in many occasions I faced 10 people in the morning asking me for what s required of them in that day. The project management wasn’t the easiest as the result.
Regardless of all, I am proud of having managed 102 distinct shots, acing done a variety of effects, from 3D modelling, full CGI character and advanced compositing and editing. The project was highlighted in several forums at the end and we won the best editing / compositing award amongst more than a hundred teams worldwide. In this page, you can find the final project, the making of video and several different images of the making of process and on-location photography.
