camaro: heritage | 60 sec spot
show user profile  Bolteon
so with the evo project wrapping up, i'm moving on to something new.

the 2010 camaro is coming out soon, and as a little tribute and something to keep me entertained; i'm putting together a 60 second spot on it.

visually, we'll be doing a 360 around a ever changing camaro. starting with the 69, then to the 73, 78, 85, 95, 02 and finally to the 2010 at the end.

audio wise, i'm thinking of doing something along the likes of a old fm radio tunning to different channels, each change will be to the chart topping hit of that year as we shift from car to car.

since it's quiet a bit of work, i've enlisted the talents of a couple of people to help with the modeling... our own red star will be working with me to create the 78, 02 and 2010 models.

so far we've got a beautiful 69 done by a friend of redstars: tom sullivan, and my old 73 model from years ago.


the spot will be done in hd, and the shooting aswell as env capture will be located across the street from where i work in venice cali; at the intersection of pacific and winward (a pretty historic place in and of it's own).

so yeah, i'll keep posting here with progress as it continues, i was supposed to go and capture some hdri's last night but surprise surprise i got really drunk and passed out before i could. maybe tonight instead.

well, some will be... some wont. for the sake of keeping the ball rolling, there wont be changes made to existing models; but others may go stock.

here are the models that i'll be pulling off of turbosquid...


no stripes though.

So how are you going to be getting to the next model once one is shown? morphing/transforming? looking forward to this.

morphing using a couple of tricks that should make the move interesting.

i posted a thread about it a while ago and came to the conclusion of what to use:

and woot, went a shot the env; it isn't in the exact spot where the car will be but it's good enough to get things started and when i have a chance i'll actually reshoot in the middle of the street.

fuckin right... i knew this place would be a great spot to do the spot.

all this sweet light play:

and the hdri:

i'm rather happy with the sloppy comp and materials still on the model from 3 years ago.

Wow ur quick.

Anyway car looks nice, background looks nice, combination of it is WAY OFF.

I mean the sharpness is just... sooo bloody different. Also is the perspective and size ok? Looks off as well...

Last but not least... learn to park a car properly! :P the way it's standing there is far from logical. (However I do have a picture of a car standing like that in front of a traficlight in London LOL)

just a personal project, so it's not paying.

but it is something to feed my creative hunger; tonight i'll hopefully have a test of the morphing in action.

updates to come as they do.
