Animated 3D Sentinel Robot

Posted by & filed under Portfolio.

When we were going through a relaunch phase for our Sentinel Server Monitoring product we had a bunch of new training videos to get online. That meant that we also needed a funky opener and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to imagine what a real ‘Sentinel’ monitoring robot might look like.

I contacted a friend of mine, Tony Price, over at – and gave him a brief that went something like ‘think half tie fighter / half battlestar galactica with a glowing orange eye’. I sketched up a quick idea and he then worked his magic and produced a very cool robot for us with Cinema 4D.

He passed the robot over to me and I rigged it, lit it, animated it and exported it ready for After Effects. Here’s the animation below (with no sound unfortunately because we didn’t quite get that far).
