Early 2021 I was brought on to work directly with Owner/CD of Loyal Kaspar New York Beat Baudenbacher to help flesh out the design of the Greenwood Rising exhibit opening in Tulsa Oklahoma later that year. The exhibit needed to tastefully tell the story of the Tulsa Massacre from beginning to end. After helping to set an initial look, I splintered off to tell the story of the ‘Massacre’ section - the fateful evening when the black residents of Greenwood Tulsa were terrorized, attacked and murdered. This project was very design heavy with dozens of styleframes created for all the sections, then moving onto creating a fully PBR textured asset library, destruction sims, and 2D/3D animation. While creating the Massacre section I had the pleasure of working with Director Geoff Bailey on the look and animation of the section. I think we created something special for this exhibit which I hope is as moving to watch as it was to work on.
More to come as the exhibit opens this summer...
