In the winter of 2021, the premiere of the Russain singer Zemfira's music video "Austin" took place. Austin is a character of the cult mobile game "Homescapes", created by Playrix.
The full animation clip is the result of the work of a large team: production studio Koshta, director Alexey Krupnik, DOP Andrey Nikolaev, animation studio Petrick and production ZHEESHEE.
This is a story about the butler Austin — main character of the Homescapes game — who had a nightmare.
While working on this project our 3D and animation skills have passed a serious test of strength. Once again we made sure that even one well-placed light source in a scene can complete a creative task in its entirety.
Our artists created art concepts for several scenes, animated Austin and Catherine. We reconstructed a scene of character's "melting", we did the grooming for Katherine's personage, "sewed" clothes for the characters in Houdini, exposed the lights and rendered "like the last time".
We are proud of our work and invaluable experience of working with a team of talented professionals.
