Trail Mixup by Nigel

This personal project is a 3d recreation of the second Jessica Rabbit maquette, created by Electrik Tiki, based on the “Trail Mix-Up” short. Reference photos of the physical maquette were once again used. No side view was available though, which posed a challenge when it came to posing the model. It’s as close as it’ll […]

Jessica Rabbit by Nigel

This was a personal project, which I undertook in my spare time. It remained a work in progress for the better part of two years. Shocking, I know! I dusted it off recently, and over the course of two days, finished up the modeling, lit, textured and renderd it out in deliciously über high resolution. […]

Fun Photos!

So who is Team Clockwork? What do they do/love/see/eat? Surely it’s not all work and no funzies? Well, a whip around the office garnered a cool collection of happy snaps from vacations and staycations, parties and feel good days. It appears that we are rockin the fun things, invigorated by the scary things and in […]

Character Pitch

We’ve been working on a pitch over the past 3 days, and thought you might like to see the progress. The shots were filmed on our new Canon 5D, in one of our many splendid local parks. For your interest, for the second and third shot, the foreground grass is all CG, with a displacement […]

3D Printed Models

Every so often it is nice to make a 3D model you can cuddle in the real world … if that’s your thing. The tactile experience can be a great selling tool for a pitch, or a keepsake from an awesome project. How do I get one, you ask? Through the power of fairy dust […]
