Community Spotlight: Scrounger

Every week we bring you a sample of our favorite community games, levels and assets. But this week we're going to show off something very different: a short movie rendered in CRYENGINE by the self-taught community member, Henrik Larsen.

Henrik set a big challenge for himself: to do EVERYTHING; from models, textures, materials, design, concept, lighting, story, animation, rigging, down to music and sounds. He wanted to keep things simple, no more than two to three characters and environments. The biggest challenge was animating the characters since there was no voice-overs and no facial features to show any form of emotions.

Henrik used the following applications to make this project a reality: CRYENGINE, 3ds Max, ZBrush, After Effects, Photoshop, and FL Studio. With his background as classical pianist, the choice of musical instrument was simple: piano! Then he added some ambient strings and synths to build up the tension.

Henrik is currently looking for a job in the industry, specialized in 3D. But by the looks of it, he seems clearly capable in design, animations and even music! We wish him the best of luck in finding an industry job and hope to see more of his CRYENGINE projects.

The 'Scrounger' CRYENGINE thread can be found here. Also follow Henrik's work at That's it for now, see you next week.
