    Working on a new video, here's a screenshot from it.

    I filmed the background at a lake in the mountains in Colorado, the weather was perfect, we got really lucky with all the fog. Modelled and animated in Maya.

    For a music video (this one is for Gryffindor, ew, I know ; ). We've done Slytherin and Hufflepuff already, and Gryffs should be out next week. I've been doing a lot of 3D for this one, we have a lot of quidditch shots and a couple students will be fighting off some dementors.

    That looks ridiculously awesome. That first picture is at a quality I'd expect for someone who is just Photoshopping up a single wallpaper or something. Whoa. Very creepy.

    You have any videos that you've done that we could watch? I'm curious about your work now, given that it seems to be entirely custom (you filmed the background yourself and are doing all the rendering/animation as well).

    If you could re-size the pictures you post so they don't stretch the screen, that would be super.

    Also, very nice work. I like.

    Oh brilliant, I didn't realize it was you guys, I saw your Hufflepuff one a while back and was really impressed. Your finished work looks really professional and your graphics are remarkable. Also your Dumbledore is ace :)

    Although the brown haired lead singer could be a literal twin of a friend of mine, which makes watching it a bit peculiar.
