Terminator: T.S.C.C promo 1

This was a promo for the UK airing of the second season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, that I produced.

It was to be in the style of the liquid metal terminator effect, that was seen in T2: Judgment day. It was great fun to produce, but very hard to get the correct feel for the mercury/liquid metal effect.

The animation is made using Realflow to simulate the liquid dynamics. I then imported this into 3DS Max to set up the materials, environment and render the camera movements.

Finally importing the renders into After Effects I added reflections, depth of field and finalised the colour grading.

This was shown on Virgin 1 in October as a teaser along with another clip in order to let viewers know the show was on its way.
