We all know that embellishment is the gold-encrusted porn-standard of Corporate Excess and that's why the time-wasting lethargically-flapping mechanical albert that is the Corporate War Machine becomes the cleanly-broken-circle of the final logo.
The question for the (seven billion) Custodians of Free Planet should really be, "Will you work to eradicate the glorification of COMMERCIAL PROFIT from your once-beautiful, diverse and bountiful homeworld?"
I really enjoyed the strict one-day-challenge aspect of this project. No rules. No storyboard. Modelling, lighting, materials, skinning, animating, rendering and mixing all in just one day. Started it this morning at 8 a.m. and finished at about 6 p.m. Borrowed some sounds from Acoustica. Sorted out a slight geometry error and re-rendered with motion blur.
Software used: Photoshop, 3DS Max and Windows Movie Maker.
