Well Done to Us!
1 March, 2017
I have to say we’re not one to normally blow the bugle too ferociously but we thought this news time it was worth a good old Bear Stock hard blow, cause … you know … we’re a little stoked to say…
We are proud to announce our ‘Kangarsaurus Rex’ picked up bronze in the One Eyeland Awards, CGI artist category. A whopping 4319 images were uploaded from 65 countries.
A power jury comprising 19 of the finest photographers, art directors and creative directors sifted through the entries and handpicked the winners – and we were one of them!
We worked closely with CG Artist Paul Gawman to create Kanga Rex. From the first sighting of the Northern NSW environment where we knew he’d fit right in to the final CG creature creation result we knew we were on the right trajectory.
Bear Stock’s founding photographer Urs Buhlman spent an afternoon searching for, finding and shooting Australia’s pre-historic rain forest resulting in one kick-my-ass backplate! He dedicated time to grading the shot and creating the perfect home – ready to share with Paul as the environment for our feisty friend and his buddies.
Two talented artists equals one project well worth the hours of effort.
Nice work boys!
