The Gates of Hell

The Gates of Hell

1 of 4 adverts to promote the launch of a new X-box game (2002).

This advert won entry into the Leeds International Film Festival.

This was a self initiated brief for one of my final degree projects in BA (Hons) TV & Film Design 2002 at the University of Lincoln, UK.

3D Recreation & Animation of Auguste Rodin’s Gates of Hell for a hypothetical X-Box game “East of the Sun”.

I wrote, concept designed, built, animated and edited the entire campaign.

“The Gates of Hell (French: ”La Porte de l’Enfer”) is a monumental sculptural group work by French artist Auguste Rodin that depicts a scene from “The Inferno”, the first section of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. It stands at 6 m high, 4 m wide and 1 m deep (19.69′H × 13.12′W × 3.29′D) and contains 180 figures. The figures range from 15 cm high up to more than one metre. Several of the figures were also cast independently by Rodin.”
