This one is one of my favourite projects as it was totally not for a client but for myself, made in my spare time. Well, the first spark of ideas came from a project about some turning gears for a logo animation. Well - the client went for something totally different in the end, but the gears wanted to be modeled and animated, so I finished this. It was one hell of a ride and lots of fun!
I couldn't resist and animate it.The moving parts are done in 3D Max, the effects on top, the light and the dark smoke are made with Trapcode Particular and other plugins in After Effects.
