Pandemic Mercs ID / Fragpile

Produced by: Arnson Communications
Animation: Tristan Maduro
Art & Creative Director: Derich Wittliff

Pitched as an embodiment of Pandemic’s brand of over the top action games. This Mercenaries themed ID is equal parts action and humor. Animated in under 3 weeks, Tristan’s first inclination was to try and create a pile of grenades using Maya’s rigid bodies…it was obvious almost immediately that the grenades would need to be animated manually. Much of the environment was modeled by Derich Wittliff for the pitch and repurposed for animation. Tristan was responsible for all animation with the exception of a few falling shards of building…which were generated in Cinema 4d by Derich Wittliff.

But don’t tell anyone.
