Jak II PS2 Commercial

Although I rarely work on commercials, I took part in building a full sized version of Jak's gun from the PS2 video game Jak II. It was nearly 3' long and had to survive repeated drops on the ground. I was given the raw Maya files from the video game (which included many infinitely thin shapes, and un-build able features), to distill down to a 3D build able model. Built around an aluminum armature using Renshape, ABS and foam filled styrene it survived 30+ takes without breaking.
