Project Review
Night at the Museum 1 and 2

Client: Twentieth Century FOX via The Cimarron Group.
Art Director(s): Calvin Sumler, Chris A. Hawkins, Joseph Stamper.
Project Date(s): Summer 2006, 2008.

While running the 3D Design Dept. at Cimarron, I worked on the Print and AV advertising for The Night at the Museum. For the first film I did a lot of different tasks, including the main museum from the final poster being all CGI, to the dinosaur for the online games and tie ins. I also animated the cards for the AV spots for the movie as well.

For the second film the work was about 1/4th that of the first film. I did an animated Egyptian Tablet that is used in the film for the AV team, and I did a series of comps for the print team as well re-using the prop already made for AV. I also did a few "flashlight" ideas for both the second film and a DVD double feature.

Cheers, THOM
