We had a team of 25-50 students. We developed a pipeline in Maya for modeling, previs, rigging and animation. We exported our animations as alembics into Houdini and there we Lit, Shaded, did FX, and rendered using Mantra. We composited in Nuke and edited it together in Premiere. We wrote our own tools, created our own pipeline much like studio would do. Our Snow FX were created from scratch as well as our UberShader and Mari pipeline for texturing. We used a linear workflow and automated as much as we could. The origination for the project was extremely challenging and getting both upperclassmen and underclassmen to work together.
