Pearl Quest

8 Minute fully CG Dark Ride (Framestore)

Pearl Quest is an immersive dark ride. We created around 8 minutes worth of full CG and an intricate magical underwater world. 

It was the first project I worked on at Framestore back in 2016 and I was the show for around a year and a half as a generalist, taking on many different tasks from model, texture, lookdev, lighting and blendshapes on a number of different assets and shots. 

My main task was the four evil dragon king characters assets and lighting the pre-show film.

Below is a collection of the blendshape work done on a few different characters, I worked on the 4 different dragon kings models and made sure that that all the important blendshape markers lined up so that we could share blendshape work between characters.
