Tinder

Invention of together


Role: CG LEAD, lead Look development, LIGhting and compositing, modeling

This was an incredibly fun and cheeky (!) project we developed for Tinder.

I was involved from the beginning, and was responsible for creating some the original styleframes, which were ideated between myself and creative director Joe Mullen, based off of the character design of the caveman by Tony Legato.

During the project, I worked as the CG Lead, as well as performing on-the-box as an artist in a variety of CG Generalist tasks, ranging all the way from Look Development to Compositing.
