Transformers 86' - Remade

To coincide with my research into the production and values of remakes I have created my own remade take on a scene from the 1986 animated Transformers Movie.

A primary goal with this project was to take a scene from a 2D animation and remake it into 3D, as a way of highlighting the differences in production and the value that can be found in a remake, whilst still respecting the original creation.

Transformers 86' - Remade

My personal take on a classic scene from the Transformers 1986 animated movie created as practical research for my Honours Project.


The Transformers Movie from 1986 is one of the first pieces of animation I can remember seeing, back on VHS, that really stuck with me. I thought it would be fun if I could base a project that marked the end of my academic education around what started my love for the digital arts in the first place.
