CG + Second Life Machinima

By May 5, 2010 One Comment

Below is a promotional movie of the activity for public industrial-academic complex of Tokyo Metropolitan University. The clip is composed of 2 elements, firstly 3D composite work using photographs of cities and campuses and secondly, machinima in Second Life using photographs of researchers and their work:

Normally we wouldn’t cover promotional movies on digital urban, but this is one caught our eye, that said we can’t personally see where Second Life was used in the clip, any ideas?

Thanks to Hidenori Watanave of for sending this in.

    My guess would be the floating staff images — the slightly jerky alt-zoom camera movement gives it away though it isn’t entirely inconsistent with the other sections.
