The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios


This project was to create the CG for a ride film at Universal Studios Theme Parks.  Our animation is projected on a large dome while the audience is seated on a carriage that can tilt and shift.  It creates the illusion of being on a crazy roller coaster. :)

I created 10+ characters for this project.  It was a real pleasure to work on characters that were so iconic.  The challenge of this project was to make the transition from 2D to 3D and still remain faithful to their original design.  My favorite of the bunch I made are Mr. Burns, Sideshow Bob and the Triceratops Pirate

This projects at Blur was done around late 2007 / early 2008.  Poly modeling was done in 3ds max and it was rendered with Brazil.  I believe the only sculpting I did was for Sideshow Bob's hair in ZB.
