Cards Against Humanity – The Bigger Blacker Box Promo Animation

August 30, 2013 - By 

When our friends from Cards Against Humanity (our favorite inappropriate card game) asked us to help make some 3D product shots of their new Bigger Blacker Box, we had to say HECK YES! They needed help making ridiculous epic, over-the-top animations for what is essentially an empty box. They also needed a giant rotating box for their main page.

Chris Schmidt started by modelling the box including every little detail so we could really get in close on some shots. Then, I lit, animated and composited the shots for delivery to the CAH team who then edited, added the voice over and music to get the final render ready. We will be posting a full breakdown of this project including some behind the scenes and a tutorial on how we did some of these shots soon.
