Year was 2005. I was first hired to 3d model, texture, shade, rig, bind, animate, light, render and integrate a photo-real tiger-shark into a series of live-action footage clips as part of a VFX studio’s samples for their bid, competing against other studios in being chosen and awarded to provide visual effects services for this film, Into the Blue.
My tiger-shark won the bid! The studio that hired me, was awarded the film’s creature visual effects work, and I was hired back on to create these sharks to be used in the actual film.
Here’s some clips from the film starring my sharks 😉
