The history of Norwegian Hiphop documentary artwork and animations

This four part documentary series details every step of the way for the Norwegian rap scene, from the fledgling graffiti and hiphop years during the 80's, to the recent mass events filling our biggest concert arenas.

Megapop, and our eminent Art Director Mikael Noguchi, contributed with key art, the title screen and several animated scenes within the documentary.

Oh, it was a great documentary series. Check it out online on NRK (only available with norwegian IP)

Sandy


For Route 66 (Redningsselskapet / Teknobingo) in Norway we made a fully modeled 3D character, who our customer proudly called Sandy.

With Sandy we went for a rather realistic, yet cartoony, look, making it possible to use her in all kinds of different poses and situations.

After deciding the style we wanted to achieve, we started the first blocking of the model, using Zbrush, and follow it through the final stages of the modeling stage adding the skin textures and fine details. The next stage is to paint the main color texture and the other maps that were use to build the Skin, clothes and accessories. Time to export it out of Zbrush and mount it up in Maya, defining the materials and adjusting the Shader Attributes for each element.

For creating the multiple poses, and later animate Sandy, we created a skeleton system and used Maya Human IK for rigging the character. Many Facial expressions were created to give the character her personality.

We also used Xgen, geometry instancer feature in Maya to create the hair, and used curves guides that were shaped to give the characters unique hair style.

For lighting the character, we used a couple area lights strategically place , replicating a realistic type of studio illumination, and rendered out the poses using Arnold.

Sandy was made to be a spokesperson, helper and all around it-girl for the Route 66 brand. She fits that 50's look perfectly, yet at the same time has a modern flair. Or so we think!

Oslo Street art

September 15, 2017

Through commisioned street art pieces our incredible AD Mikael Noguchi and our helpers have done entire buildings, walls, elderly centers, youth clubs and restaurant interiors.

Here are some excerpts from work this late summer.

Megapop makes Norway more beautiful!





Ferring Menopur App


We developed and launched an app project together with Ferring Medicals. The app is called 'Menopur app' in the app stores, and is a supplement to medical clinical treatment for women who seeks to become pregnant artificially.

Ferring wanted a modern app solution which tied directly to individual pregnancy clinics around Norway, and each clinic got a separate version of the app through a code.

The app gives the users a full overview of which medications to take when, information about the medicine, when doctor appointments are up, as well as information on the pregnancy phases. The app has a full push notification system reminding the user on when things needs to be done, and follows the user through treatment cycles.

Megapop continues to update the app in live operation

PTS App




We developed and launched a major app project together with Pension Insurance for Seamen (PTS). The app is called 'Ditt PTS' in the app stores. They have around 175.000 members, primarily workers from the oil and sea industries of Norway.

The app intends to make everyday pension life simpler for the PTS members, while ensuring they receive all the information they would need to their mobiles.

PTS wanted a modern app solution which tied directly to their servers, MinD login systems and webpages, but making it easily accessible and tailored for mobile devices. In the app you can also apply for pension, chat with PTS customer service, and receive push notifications and open emails.

We also delivered marketing material and analytics solutions to the project

The project was delivered on time, on budget and on quality. Megapop will continue to operate the app for PTS in the times to come.

Features:


Months of seagoing service – Get an overview on how many months of seagoing service, PTS have registered on you.

Apply for pension – You can apply for your seaman’s pension through the app, as well as keep in touch with us as you get closer to retirement.

Messages - Get important messages from us on payouts, applications, replies on your requests and other information relevant to you.

Pension Calculator – Estimate your coming seaman’s pension. Get an overview of the economy you can expect during your retirement years.

Customer service – You can contact us on email or phone through the app. Our helpful staff is here to aid you in the best possible way.

PTS News – Get access to the latest news from PTS, or get an insight into how we work in the ‘About PTS’ section.

Secured through the ‘ID-Porten’ – All sensitive parts of the app are secured behind MinID or BankID login. PTS has thorough routines for storing of your personal data, such as information about your payouts.

About PTS:


Pension Insurance for Seamen (PTS) is a statutory pension scheme for employees working at sea. Our main task is to pay pensions to seafarers when they are aged between 60 and 67 and to receive contributions to premiums from both employees and employers.

The scheme is managed by PTS which is a public body under the Norwegian Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. PTS is managed by a board of five members of which four are appointed by employee and employer organisations while the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs appoints its chairman. We have 25 employees across five departments who all report directly to the director.

THEMOON APP ⇢

Client reference

THEMOON has created a virtual trading destination over the past two years. The service is available as APP on iOS and Android. This is built on Unity in frontend. Everything is built from scratch and there has been some experimentation to find the right direction regarding design and usability. THEMOON will be gradually launched across Europe and will have users of all ages.
THEMOON was under pressure to launch the service as quickly as possible. In the summer of 2016, we were very lucky that MegaPop had capacity for frontend developers, some of those with the longest experience with Unity and game development in Norway. This enabled us to quickly get assistance on architecture and development on several levels. We chose to hire both senior and junior developers and recommend this, as everyone gets the job where they are strong and that it is challenging enough.
MegaPop delivered good architecture, improved old code, produced good functionality, created features for user analysis and good user-friendly graphical work. In addition, MegaPop has good experience with launch strategies that we took advantage of.

The consultants are very nice and decent. We had 5 people on the project at most. The management are familiar with the typical challenges on such a project and were helpful where they could.
THEMOON had not been there we are today without the help of MegaPop and strongly recommend them.

Student life at Megapop

May 24, 2017


We've had two students with us now, who dream of becoming game developers. And we love to support those dreams. Who knows, one they make work with us in proper?

Fredrik Nylund from Røyken is here for a full week, and besides misc jobs, he also tries to do a bit of game coding. Here he gets help from Thomas on improving his code.

Fabian Wilskow Aanes from Vikersund was here for the day to work as a game developer, and has been working a bit on character design for our next game, as well as testing and giving feedback on Trolls 2. And gave some really cool ideas!

We hope to see them again in a few years as game developers.
