For the relaunch of this well renowned Belgian beer, we had the distinct privilege of bringing its epic creation myth to life — A tale replete with war, beer witches, Norbertine monks, and yes, the fiery phoenix, whose rejuvenating flames (like a strong abbey beer) burn but never consume. My roles on this project included modeling, texturing, projection, and lighting for both the final animation and interactive web content. Check out the site:
