Earlier this year I had a chance to make an awesome movie poster-like advertising image for the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering of the University of Oulu.
A group of fine young students had spent the last 10 months building a giant robot suit called “Teraleon”. Yes, it is a suit. And one can operate it through a mobile app.
It’s a staggering 3,1 meters (10 feet) tall and has 50 electric motors operating itself and it’s “guns” and over 20 meters (65 feet) of color changing LED-strips.
I have to say it’s by far the biggest thing I’ve shot in my studio..
Because the University of Oulu is located here way up north they wanted an arctic feel for the image.
So I went out to take pictures of a frozen Bay of Bothnia around Oulu and of course the University for the background.
The people in the image are those actual students who made the whole thing.
Here’s the final image:
And here you can watch how it all came together. About 8 hours of retouching in 10 minutes 😉
