We had the amazing opportunity to work with Alpine Electronics on some projects for Honda. This was the second project we worked on for them, and it was for the 2017 CES. Similar to the first project we did for them for the Los Angeles Auto Show they wanted us to create another cool looking navigation system to run on their display at the convention. This time they wanted a completely different look from the first one we did for them.
As with the first one 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 Las Vegas to the Las Vegas Convention Center. As with the first video the 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 create a completely different look for this demo video. With all the asset building, design iterations, and the extremely tight deadline it required some long days for our team. We did learn a lot working on the first video with them, and once again where able to deliver on time.
