Carmichael Lynch Minneapolis and Smoke & Mirrors New York (SMNY) recreates the Bambi-on-ice scene for the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Cute.
from Smoke & Mirrors New York (SMNY):
Via our recently ramped up 3D department we were able to create, rig, animate and render the entire project in under a month. Smoke & Mirrors filmed the live-action backgrounds in Central Park, then the Manhattan skyline was replaced with the Denver Museum area in post.
Every detail from the ice cracking under the reptile's tremendous weight, to ice chips flying from its slipping feet were rendered to create a believable, cohesive scene.
