Piaggio Fast Forward - Autonomy for Humans
Worked with the wonderful team at Oddfellows on this beautiful spot for Piaggio Fast Forward, telling the story of their newest members of the Piaggio family, Gita and Kilo. Creating this spot was a huge team effort, and it was an amazing project to be a part of.
Role: 3D Animation, Texturing
Studio: Oddfellows
My main task on this project was to prepare the 3D version of the Gita, so it could be used in the spot for multiple shots in a fast and dynamic way. Piaggio Fast Forward initially provided a detailed 3D model of the Gita. From here, I worked on transforming the detailed model, so it matched the graphic language we worked with. This meant that I used cel shaders in C4D in order to make it blend in nicely with the 2D graphics, and I also had to remove and enlarge certain elements on the detailed model. My guide was the styleframes that were provided by the main designer on the project, Yuki Yamada. I also animated the Gita in some of the shots.
