Leonos by The Coffee Films

rendered in Maya, Mental Ray and Shave and Haircut plugin

The Coffee Films is one of the leading production companies in Cyprus, and during its 20 years work created an impressive portfolio.

The studio specialises in TV and Post production, motion graphics, 3D Animation and VisualFX.

The animated lion was a 3d VFX part of a TV commercial for the Leonos medical brand. The goal was to create a realistic animation of a lion which would eventually freeze and merge into the brand logo. The realistic mane and fur were created using A Shave and Haircut plugin for Maya, pre-cached and uploaded linked to the scene for the final rendering.

In cases when such caches are too big to transfer, GarageFarm.NET offers a possibility of caching them locally on one of the fastest nodes using a remote desktop connection.
