Happycamper for China Mobile: “Wireless City”

Happycamper spent the fall of 2011 working alongside China Mobile to create an ambitious mixed-media piece in Wireless City. Using a combination of traditional model-making techniques and 3D technology, the spot bridges the gap between traditional and digital mediums. With a meticulous craftsmanship, the audience remains oblivious to the integration of contrasting techniques, and the difference between what is physical and inanimate becomes indistinguishable. The result is seamless. Working from sketches, maquette models, and architectural blue-prints, Happycamper enlisted the help of Vaidas Bagonas for character design, Milford for final models and Codsteaks for the creation of small props and set building.

  • Excellent, and more importantly: Where can I buy the song?

    prop for background?, tracking + 3d  + HDR lighting for characters? 

    • Yes, that´s pretty much it. We used motion control for some shots to be able to mirror certain elements  such as the trees in the apple garden and some houses.

        very nicely executed. the integration is very slick :D. what was the rendering engine you guys used?

        • I think Milford, who did all of the CG-production, uses renderman… But I´m not sure…
