FedEx animation

I few years ago, I did some animation for a series of FedEx industrial videos. This was another low-budget job, so I only had a few days to work on each one.
Reviewing one of these videos a few months ago, I determined that the character animation was interesting enough to justify a rendering enhancement and subsequent publication to my Vimeo account.

Here are some frames from the original animation that I delivered for rendering 2 years ago. This was my starting point for creating this new version (see video above). The biggest addition is the warehouse interior with delivery trucks.

To add optical effects in the compositing program, 3 passes were employed from the modeling program:
  • a reflection pass to accentuate the highlights
  • a mask for applying glow to the words
  • a mask for applying light-wrap to all foreground elements
