This is one of five short tags created for Walmart Canada featuring Wilf, Wink and Wilma. Each tag focuses on the release of Walmart’s latest DVDs and video games within their electronics department.
One large set was created for all five spots, each featuring texture decals which could be easily swapped between movie and video game signs. The shelves and racks could be quickly relocated depending on what type of spot it was for. The characters were skinned with custom rigs and all the animation was keyframed, including the special effects (with the exception of the cloth in “Castle”.)
This tag was modeled and animated with 3dsmax 6.0, rendered with VRay 1.47.03 and composited with Combustion. The depth of field was produced with Depth Of Field Generator PRO.
