2010 Demo Reel With Breakdown

D.E.M.O. from Mike DuPree on Vimeo.

> The D.E.M.O. project was designed to illustrate my technical and artistic skills.


> All shaders, models and artwork were created by me exclusively.


> Maya, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects were used to construct this project.


> Mental Ray DGS and MIA materials were predominately used to gain a more realistic distribution of light.


> Area lights were also used with photons and global illumination to aid in the distribution of light within the space.


> Ambient occlusion, specular light map and depth of field render passes were composited in post to illustrate a more engaging depiction of space.


> Watercolor paintings were produced through live observational studies from the Field Museum in Chicago.
