Normally, Andy Lefton works in the field of advertising but with ‘Two Worlds’ he ventures into new territory – with the help of Cinema 4D.
With this trailer, Andy creates a dramaturgical effect making the viewer want to see more. And the quality of rendering for this trailer is so realistic that you have to look twice to see that it was created using computer graphics. “You could say that just about every Cinema 4D function was used for this project. In particular dynamics, hair and cloth made it possible for me to create exactly the look I wanted. I was able to concentrate completely on the film and didn’t have to worry about how I was going to realize specific parts. For me, Cinema 4D is the most important tool for all aspects of 3D, VFX and motion design!” says Andy.
Andy did a lot of research for his ‘Two World’ project and created numerous production sketches. “Drawing is not my greatest strength but, together with the images I researched, it helped a lot in creating the various elements, characters and scenes as I envisioned them. After the first sketches had been made I created a complete storyboard, which was used to define the speed of the camera movement and the action.” Andy then began creating all elements and scenes in Cinema 4D. “Cinema 4D’s and BodyPaint 3D’s seamless connectivity to Photoshop was invaluable for the creation phase,” exclaims Andy.
