Found Studio's Spectacular 3D Models Tell The Story of Europe

Modelling, sculpture and texturing was developed from scratch for Viasat History's new landmark history series

Found Studio's Spectacular 3D Models Tell The Story of Europe

Viasat History release ‘The Story of Europe’, a show examining the fundamental pillars of European history: war, religion, art, science, revolution, and exploitation.Working closely with the European Broadcaster, London based studio Found, directed and produced the show's promo and idents, along with imagery for OOH and online.

The creative is abstract and artful, representing themes through classical sculptures – Caesar, Michelangelo’s David, Columbus, Lady Liberty, and Franz Ferdinand. The final scene of the promo brings fragments of these sculptures together to create one final bust, that of modern Europe, built from the continent’s fragile and diverse history.

Requiring an array of technical approaches, Found utilised skills in both C4D and Houdini, along with additional tools such as X-Particles, Substance Painter and ZBrush. The sculptures required varying levels of modelling, sculpting and texturing: Franz Ferdinand and Columbus were modelled entirely from scratch. Found developed a unique fracturing technique to finish the project, shattering the statues once approved.
