Konami “Metal Gear Solid 4” – Praying Mantis shot 01

Set up dynamic electrical wires attached to a steel utility pole. The pole was animated & deformed using blendshapes upon impact by the robotic praying mantis character. The wires were driven by a hair system, and a shower of sparks was added with Maya particles.

Antarctic

Photographed a 360 stitched pano at Red Rock Canyon, then matte painted it into a futuristic Antarctic scene with sky replacement. Added a nodal camera and integrated some 3D spaceships and snow particle systems. This was screened at the 2006 Digital Sets & Environments seminar in Norway.
