Student Showcase: Michael Swan meets Tag Heuer

Tag Heuer watch by Michael Swan
Michael Swan is one of our talented animation students here at Bucks, who is working hard to become a skilled digital artist and an expert modeller. As part of his studies he has completed a project for the Swiss watch company Tag Heuer, accurately modelling one of their products and creating a short film set to music, shown below:

Good CG modelling is an important skill for a digital artist, but students often forget that one of the most important aspects of being a good modeller is being able to accurately reproduce existing products. There is plenty of well-paid work out there in advertising and commercials, creating accurate copies of products and bringing them to life. It may not be as much fun as building fantasy creatures, but it is a necessary part of any digital artist's portfolio.

Congratulations to Michael on an excellent piece of work.
