14 artists worked for 5 weeks to create this amazing project and present Athens and the Acropolis as they were during the times of Pericles…
As the CG Supervisor at “Whiskytree” team says:
“Athens was an internal development project to improve our layout tools and see how much geometry we could push through our lighting pipeline (XSI / Arnold). The project had a 6 week schedule though we finished the project in 5 weeks.
At the peak of asset creation we had 14 artists dedicated to the project during the first 3 weeks. Once assets and layouts where complete the crew scaled back to just a few people to finish the shot”.
