We had the amazing opportunity to work with Alpine Electronics on some projects for Honda. This was the first project we worked on for them, and it was for the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. They wanted our help creating a cool looking navigation system to run on their display at the convention.
We only had a little more then a month to do all the work, and we needed to create a 3D animation of a 2 minute drive through of the streets of Los Angeles to the Los Angeles Convention Center. Our first challenge was creating all the city and street models for the 3,600 frame drive through the city. The next challenge was trying to lock down the "cool" look the client wanted. With all the asset building, design iterations, and the extremely tight deadline it required some long days for our team. When the dust settled we were able to get everything done and deliver on time.
