Here's a little movie showing the VFX of smashing the Piano for Film4 new set of idents competed at Analog.
I found a whole bunch of playblasts from all the hundreds of sim's, so i decided to put them together in a little montage.
The piano is modelled in 3dsMax by me, and sim'd by me using DMM in Maya. Renders and lighting were done by Simon Reeves, and comp by Fabio Zaveti. Direction by MvM

The first major project of the new year. Well, the first to finish atleast. On this spot I animated the car's and the jet in Maya. Although they were not on the screen for very long, they needed to be shown off in the best way. There was some pretty tight art direction to follow.
I also brought Alembic versions into 3dsMax to add particle dust and chunks. Using Pflow and the new mParticles I setup a quick system that was used for all the cars.

A little Breakdown of the Film 4 Idents. My main focus was the piano breaking, which took about 30 takes by the end. Using Maya and DMM, then cached via Alemic, brought into Softimage and re skinned with a high res model. Rendered with Vray.

Here's another new bit of work. Completed over the past few months. Analog consulted on the shoot and live action. Then we did all the post, which even though it looks limited, was a huge amount of work. Hopefully there will be a making of shortly.
It's testament to my fellow Analog colleagues how invisible all the post stuff was, as many still cling onto this being completely 'in camera'.
My main task was fracturing the logo and the piano. This was done using DMM in Maya, after about 30 takes we got the right version. After this we cleaned it up in Softimage by 'wrapping' more detailed geo back the fracturing/flexing forms using ICE. It would have been nice to add all the strings etc, but it became way to complicated.

I also had to animate the logo for each version. This consisted of 20 'stop frame' positions to get the right feel as the footage ramped up and down.

There is a ton of work in progress stuff on this, I may post it up once the dust has settled.

This amazing project was just finished at Analog, and was the culmination of several months work by our VFX Supervisor.
I was really lucky to be able to contribute a tiny tiny fraction, simulating some cloth for various shots, a few of which didn't make it to the final cut.
Amazing to think the rest was completed by a one man army.
