The Chemical Factory: Teaser for a Short Animated Documentary

Hi there,

I wanted to share with you guys a teaser I created for an animated documentary, “The Chemical Factory”, about my mother. Made with Unreal and animated in Maya.

A while ago I had made a 5 minute animatic and was trying to seek grants to help finish the short. It got to the point where it was hard to explain to people the look. Long story short, never show animatics when you’re trying to show people what you’re doing. So over the holidays, I made this teaser edited down from the animatic and put it through Unreal. Part of this was also a proof of concept for the process that it could be done.

For more information, I set up a website for the whole project at:

Animation: Maya
Modeling: Zbrush, Maya, and Sketchup
Texturing: Substance Painter
Rendering, Viz Dev, and Layout: Unreal
Editing: Premiere Pro and After Effects
Music: Sonar

Hope you guys enjoy it!
