Early Birds
visual effects

We had the chance to work on the visual effects for the commercial “Early Birds” for the Steinbeis Stiftung. This has been a great project as we’ve been fully involved into the conceptual part of the visual effects as well as the post-production work later. After some meetings with the client Cinecore GmbH we started off by creating rough concept designs and collecting references to set a range for the creative process. We had three topics to work on. Nanobots, an aircraft and a robot. The main idea behind the designs was an infantile design with elaborate and futuristic technology. Unlike the nanobots and the robot we didn’t build the aircraft in 3D. We decided to build a real model which we could also use on set. Besides these effects we also did some set-extension work. Some of the set-extension shots have been made by Cinecore.
