This is the HD version of the Carmin Cares book trailer. (The official Pumpkinheads version with thousands of Likes and comments is here.)

 

This is my demo reel of 3D and 2D animation and 3D crowds simulation.

Feature Film Crowds Simulation (01:02 to 01:23)

Film: The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
