JBL- Ear of the Tornado

 My Role:

I modeled a set of highly detailed interlocking ground tiles. The salt flat tiles needed to hold up to close camera angles, each tile in the 7 tile cluster supported several 4096 maps. In the end they are motion blurred, but I can assure you the grains of salt were visible on each tile ;) Best part of the Job was sitting next to the magical Miguel Salek and seeing the tornado progress.
