Found this little gem a day ago, a school project for Fachhochschule Kaiserslautern (University of Applied Sciences) by a Mr. VirtualMadden. An impressive work, and the details are described by himself...
"I made this project in the third semester. The primary aim was to create an animation of a new transformer. I thougt it would be interesting to do something new and get it into a little story."
Most videos are fairly succinct in their presentation, but in addition to making this work, Mr. VirtualMadden also produced a second "making of" video, which is frankly, just as interesting! (see below)
If this is his school project, I'm certainly looking forward to his professional career! To see more regarding the gentleman, please visit his website, at: visual-edge.blogspot.com!
