Hey guys,

I thought i'd make use of the other arts section for a change!

I've started ramping up production on the CG music video for my song balloons.

Here are some WIP shots:

Obviously, I can't afford a render farm or anything, so I render it all using CryENGINE (i work for Crytek the games company.) If you're looking for a way to render stuff quickly with good quality, you can find it here: https://www.cryengine.com/

More updates coming soon!!!

Hey @GreatBigThings ow that's great you're using this part of the site to share this stuff with us. I loved the balloon track and great info about the Crytek engine, downloading right now ;-)
I loved Crysis (the game) back then and I was amazed how realistic it was. Going to play with the engine for a bit..
I'm looking forward to see the renders of balloons when you're finished!! Will you share them?

Hi !

This is really interesting! Thanks for sharing! (I had missed your ĎBallooní song post earlier and Iím listening to it right now - and it sounds great!) Iím looking forward to the video now! I can really imagine balloons flying upwards to the playful piano rhythm. Itís great that you can tie your CGI background with your songwriting :)

Youíve also got some great work on artstation link! :) Youíve got such an interesting job! Itís great that you can express your creativity in different ways. :)

Thanks for sharing the link to the rendering software. Iíve always found rendering fascinating (I build models (of buildings) and make use of basic rendering tools but have never delved in too much detail on the topic as yet).

Keep us updated on the progress of your video! :)

@Mar T. - Hopefully I can be finished in a few weeks! I will throw it up on youtube when it's done :)

@Rachel_D - Yes it's an awesome job, I realized at some point the power of music in my cinematics, it's a huge component and can really elevate a piece of film... that's probably why i started composing/songwriting. Balloons will be a simple video with a feel good message- and hopefully nice rendering, but in the future i'd like to try more complex stuff. I use sites like www.3dsky.org and www.megascans.se so I don't need to spend hours modelling everything.
