Take one look at the short below, THE GREEN RUBY PUMPKIN, and tell us if you think it was made in someone's living room. Don't believe it? Well it's true!
The Green Ruby Pumpkin is a fun little short film that captures the enchantment of Halloween, a passion project that was created by two senior visual effects artists, Miguel Ortega (300) and Tran Ma (THOR). According to Ortega's Vimeo page, the entire short was rendered on 7 computers: Running Maya for 3D, Mudbox for sculpting, Mari and Mudbox for Texture Painting, Vray for rendering, Nuke for compositing.
Maybe you know what all that means, but I'm not tech-head. All I know is that I love The Green Ruby Pumpkin, a colorful, surreal ode to trick or treating. Take a gander at the short here:
