Le Chateau de Pierrefonds

For my architecture thesys i decided to talk about the Castle of Pierrefonds. I decided to rebuild it in 3ds max and render a 7 minutes sequence. I will show it during my talk. I began to model last year: the first max file was created on 24th april. it took me about one year to model the whole castle and it's not finished yet: exterior is still missing. It count about 2.300.000 polys. Here are some render of the wip. I began to render it in vray, but I decided to render the final in mental ray.

A late render with the exterior almost done

The exterior done. The gound outside the walls was taken from google earth then modified in max for better results.

That's brilliant! Did you know there is a BBC fantasy show called 'Merlin' filmed on location at Pierrefonds Castle every year? Maybe you should contact the production team and sell them this amazing model.
