Airport Robot "CALM" - Design, Model, and Renders

This robot - "CALM" (design, model, rendering) - was created as a group project of six people, as part of my fourth semester of Multimedia Art studies. After its first conception, I was responsible for modelling, PBR texturing, and setting up both scenes and their respective lighting. After rendering, I also worked in After Effects (most notably the film's last far shot), and composited everything into the final cut in Adobe Premiere. CALM's designed is based on fundamental airport requirements, like a first-aid kit, quick information distribution and navigation, easy access power-banks, emergency equipment and alert system, flexible charging and size on the go, and stable mobility, as well as basic safety.

Frontal shot in the "Airport" environment; all scenes set there were rendered in Cycles to allow for a bit more realism, and were deliberately kept short.

Base model turn-around, rendered in Eevee.

"Studio" shots were intentionally set in a more abstract and neutral environment with its own dynamic studio light setup bound to the camera, allowing us to film more 'unrealistic' angles and movements.
