The Major Contender Films During The 2019 Chinese New Year

During the 2019 Chinese New Year’ holiday, the box office is 5.84 billion in total. Compared with 2018, although there is only a small increase, the variety of films has brought countless surprises to the audience.
In the 2019 China’s Spring Festival holiday season, 14 films including The Wandering Earth, Pegasus, Crazy Alien, The New King of Comedy, The Knight of Shadows: Between Yin and Yang, Boonie Bears: Blast into the Past, Peppa Celebrates Chinese New Year, etc. There are many styles, like comedy, science fiction, suspense, sports, family, animation.
Among them, Fox Renderfarm provided cloud rendering support for the Spring Festival movie box office reached 3.61 billion, accounting for 61% of the total box office of the Lunar New Year, and continued to rise in few days during the Spring Festival. What surprises did these movies bring to the audience? Let's take a look at it~
The Wandering Earth
Although the Chinese New Year has passed, the popularity of The Wandering Earth has not diminished. As of today, The Wandering Earth's box office has exceeded 4 billion, and reached 7.9 points on IMDb.
It is reported that 75% of the visual effects in the film are completed by the Chinese team. The post-production and special effects work lasted for two years. It has experienced more than 3,000 conceptual designs, with more than 10,000 visual effects props, more than 2,000 visual effects lenses and a large number of computer graphics.
In order to present a more realistic cosmic environment, the team used 8 studios in the film industry park, and the landscape workshop processed and produced more than 10,000 items. The exhibition area was nearly 100,000 square meters, equivalent to 14 football fields. Including trucks, underground cities, space stations, etc. are all real-life construction. In order to meet the illusion of space, the crew completed the production of tens of thousands of props. Among them, the exoskeleton armor was invited to the Hollywood special effects company Weta Studio. As the first step works in Chinese science fiction film history, although The Wandering Earth has an immature place, its breakthrough and innovation marks the first time that the type of science fiction film has been formed in the Chinese film industry, which has cultivated the audience's aesthetic.
Pegasus (飞驰人生)
In just seven months, Pegasus completed a series of processes from pre-production, post-production and improvement. The aesthetic tension and visual impact of the racing scene in the film were full and burning, and the current box office has reached 1.6 billion. The combination of Han Han and Shen Teng on the track also promoted the “cold humor” upgrade. All the industrial attributes in the film are being rationalized for the plot. The crew unearthed a devil's track in the plateau of four kilometers above sea level in Xinjiang. Han Han, the director, also a racing driver, personally went into battle to make a carpet-style racing training for Shen Teng before shooting. More than ten valuable selected cars were unveiled. Through the film, you can feel the professionalism of the car, the humor of comedy and the strong industrial texture of film production.
Boonie Bears: Blast into the Past
As a series of animations, how to surpass the previous work and let the audience shine is the biggest challenge for the team. In order to ensure the vitality of the film, the Fantawild production team has made great efforts in terms of pre-production, production technology and post-performance. From the current 670 million box office, Boonie Bears: Blast into the Past has been successful. The audience satisfaction is also higher than the series of predecessors Boonie Bear: The Big Shrink and Boonie Bears: Fantastica, which is the best in the series. Compared with the previous works, Boonie Bears: Blast into the Past has a great improvement in light and shadow processing. The production team also conducted in-depth study and research on Yeti and Houdini, as well as character production and scene effects. Before the film production, the production team practiced and copied the four-footed movements and performances that may appear in the film, analyzed the characteristics of the animals in depth, and developed a binding system specifically for the quadruped.
It is worth mentioning that this year, Boonie Bears: Blast into the Past, a large number of animals, hundreds of wolves and a variety of animal supporting hair production, put high demands on the production team. The production team updated the production plug-in, referenced the expressions of other animals in different environments and states, and produced the dynamic assets of the available Yeti system and Nhair system according to the project requirements. More than a dozen versions were produced, and the final film was obtained through continuous testing.
Besides, another movie that rendered by Fox Renderfarm, The Knight of Shadows: Between Yin and Yang, starring Jackie Chan, which is a collection of Chinese traditional culture elements. As the world's leading visual cloud computing platform, a leading render farm, Fox Renderfarm currently provides cloud rendering support for over 150,000 artists. In 2018, the total number of rendered works is over 60, the total number of rendered frames exceeds 150 million, and the rendered amount exceeds 8PB... 2019 It is a new beginning and a challenge. We hope to provide users with high-quality cloud rendering services, strengthen communication and cooperation with industry enterprises, and promote development.

FGT3D Explorer Challenge Winners Announced
FGT3D Explorer Challenge Winners Announced
As 2020 is a difficult year, we will all be explorers to seek hope in 2021. The explorer can be a traveller looking for a mysterious place, a spacecraft roaming through the Milky Way, or a doctor researching the vaccine. Please create your 3D render, show the explorer in your mind and explore your possibilities.3 Professional artworks and 3 Student artworks will be selected and awarded! Professional Category 1st Place!Main - Deepak Jain- Title: Hard Time- Created by Deepak JainWhat Deepak says*In this hard time where people are finding it hard to breathe and oxygen is costlier than life this was the only positive i never wanted. In a country of colors and love we are seeing helplessness and deaths but we have been a fighter and this too shall pass. In this picture I have portrayed the helplessness people are facing, sorrow and a little hope that we can fight this too.*What our jury says- Ben Cheung: Highly detailed scene, goose bumpy mood setting, great lighting and color temperature, deserted hospital equipment versus body and seems new dress makes this excellent art work very creepy.- Frank WANG Yefeng: A mesmerizing image! It makes one feel like being in the same room with this character. The photo-realistic rendering proliferates a sense of empathy. Simply moving!- Kariem Saleh: This indeed is looking like a hard time for the girl in the center of the frame. Lighting and color contrasts play nicely in this very atmospherically dense frame. The setting is visually rich, though very effective in using and reusing a limited amount of assets and geometry. You feel like you want to step into the screen and get her out of this misery.- Cenay Oekmen: Powerful storytelling.- Xcenselabs Team: The details are exquisite, Mottled walls, Rusty instruments....strong skills. The reverie space of the theme is very large. The atmosphere of sadness appeared on the paper. 2nd Place!Kay John Yim Explorer - John Yim- Title: Explorer Stumbling upon Heavenly Gates- Created by Kay John YimWhat John says*Children are often believed to have memories before they were born - for some believe fairy tales are young boys and girls' recollections of the pre-existence world, fractals of flashbacks that give us a glimpse into "Heaven".**What's lesser-known is that since one's worldview only settles when they reach 11 years old, children perceive the world through a pair of unbiased lens, and are able to see what adults would subconsciously discard as fiction or fantasy.**For this reason, they are also seen as Explorers living in their own worlds of fantasy, exploring their own memories of pre-existence - except that their tales of Heavenly Gates and Angel Stories are not memories before they were born, but rather unbiased perceptions of our reality visible only to the sinless minds.*What our jury says- Miho Aoki: I think many of us had childhood experiences where we wandered in bushes and suddenly realized we have come very far from home. We turned around and went home, but this image made me think what'd if we keep going a bit farther. Maybe we got totally lost or maybe walked into something magical like this scene. The lighting and the flying flower petals show a suspended moment of wonderment of the child encountering the angel and the gate.- Corona Renderer Team: There is a genuine sense of wonder captured in the image, and I think a sense of wonder is what drives all explorers. Also, with the child being the explorer here, it takes me back to being a kid when every day was an adventure, and I would head out over the beach or down a disused railway line never knowing what magic I would find (or at least conjure in my imagination as to what might be around the next corner or over the next hill!) 3rd Place!leaving-the-colony-- Title: Leaving the colony- Created by David AgueroWhat David says*The colony settlement was a failure, I'm the last colonist to leave, don't come back, everything is falling apart - end of message.*What our jury says- Frank WANG Yefeng: Very rich colors and visual elements in a single frame. The composition suggests a very successful sense of depth. I can't stop imagining what it will look like if it's converted to a VR environment.- Miho Aoki: A spaceship is leaving a town on the bottom of a cliff. The town appears to be some sort of a mining operation or settlement. The artist used colors and surface materials very effectively. The color of the town is like the rocks and doesn't look like a very good place to live. The spaceship is painted green and looks very different from the town. It makes me wonder if the spaceship is escaping from the dying town or on a mission to save it, but it looks like a great adventure is waiting for the people aboard.- Corona Renderer Team: I like the sense of motion in this one, the spaceship setting out on a journey to who-knows-where. Whether that is their home behind them and they are setting out for new places, or whether they discovered the colony behind them and are returning home to report their findings, there is a definite sense of exploration in this one.- Xcenselabs Team: The details are exquisite, the pattern on the rock, Reflections in the water....strong skills. Visual sense is like film. Student Category 1st Place!Render 01Tim- Title: Subway 2041- Created by Tim JagodkaWhat Tim says*A post apocalyptic Subway entrance that is being discovered after a civil war.*What our jury says- Frank WANG Yefeng: The graffiti sign states "no future," which resonates really well with the scene outside of the subway exit. It makes one wonder what has happened outside. This is a very inspirational approach to depict a post-apocalyptic world.- Miho Aoki: Are we looking through the eyes of someone who just came out from a safe space underground after a catastrophic event on Earth? It looks as if the person is venturing out to the outside world after years of staying underground. The grown plants indicate it's been a long time since they evacuated from the outside world. Bright light is blinding and masking the view of the outside. We can just imagine how the world looks like and what the person will encounter out there. The graffiti suggests that people once lost hope, but this person dares to go out to the world and explore. The lighting is excellent, and the artist used the contrast between light and dark very effectively.- Cenay Oekmen: Nice light setup and very good texture work.- Xcenselabs Team: Very lifelike characters. The light at the exit is hopeful. 2nd Place!Under the Sea - Rafael García del Valle- Title: Underwater- Created by Rafael Garcia del ValleWhat Rafael says*Explorers finding weird creatures deep in the ocean.*What our jury says- Miho Aoki: The artist created the mysterious underwater feel and sense of depth and scale successfully with the lighting and colors. The color scheme with blue contrasting with red and yellow is beautiful. It looks like the underwater explorers are doing some research and just realized giant marine organisms appeared. The contrast between the dark and rigid-feeling silhouettes of the submarine and rocks and the round forms and bright colors of the creatures enhance the organic feel of the creatures. It makes us wonder what is going to happen next.- Kariem Saleh: The picture sucks you right in and deeply under the sea's surface. You want to join the explorers of this image on their journey into the unknown. This could be right out of a Jules Verne sci-fi movie. The steampunk design elements play extremely well with the organic nature of the creatures and rock scape. Awesome work!- Corona Renderer Team: I love how this reminds us that there is so much exploration still to be done right here at home - the depths of the oceans are still such a mystery! And I like how the creatures are both fantastic, yet very plausible. To wrap it up, the dynamic poses of the characters in the scene give a sense of drama and action, it looks like they were exploring some rocks or other structures when suddenly a never-seen-before behemoth comes into view. 3rd Place!Explorers-from-the-future AndreyOliver FGT3DAndrey-Oliver- Title: Explorers from the future- Created by Andrey OliverWhat Andrey says*Imagine if we humans, in the distant future exploring the borders of our dimension, rediscovered ourselves in the past, thinking that it is another species.*What our jury says- Ben Cheung: One of the best student works, believable lighting, mood setting, attention to details, even the No parking sign are rendered nicely, though the background forest looked a bit flat, otherwise excellent work.- Frank WANG Yefeng: The image has a great sense of humor. We don't know who is landing this aircraft, but obviously the pilot doesn't understand the "No-Parking" sign!- Kariem Saleh: Great combination of painterly looks and 3D rendering. who didn't ever park his ship in a no-parking spot? The cartoony and still technical design of the vehicle looks absolutely stylish. The colors of the paint finish pop out greatly surrounded by this rough and hazardous landscape.Want to see the full finalists? More information FGT3D Explorer Challenge
