Dave Fothergill: The Art and Science of Crowd Cruelty

Dave Fothergill, currently a senior VFX artist at RealtimeUK in Manchester, hit the internet hard two days ago with his hilarious/fascinating crowd dynamics test called “I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up!”

We went looking for more of Mr. Fothergill’s work and unearthed this precursor (below) called “UFO Culling.” Both pieces were created in Maya with the Miarmy crowd plugin.
