It became pretty apparent early on, that this world needed to built in 3d if I wanted to get the shots looking as impressive as possible. This was a HUGE effort. After the designs were nailed down, buildings, cars, the stadium, statues, floating cameras, jumbotrons, and a blimp were modeled, UV’d, textured, animated and finally rendered in 7 different passes and composited in After Effects. The stadium is crazy impressive. Each of the 40k modeled seats sit a crazy fan.
As soon as basic models were built, I started experimenting with the camera and that breakable news van!
