Breakdown of the animation, “Herbie Blow Bye”.
3D animation over a tracked video plate. The camera shows a damaged car off to right of screen … pans left to show a roughed-up VW (Herbie – Douglas Special) coming up the path.
Project involves: Tracking of dirt road, hill and trees, 3D objects modeled, textured, lit, rendered, and composited to look like it all could happen!
VW (“Herbie”), Dragster, electric generator, engine blower, white rock, tire drill and cord were modeled in Maya and Modo, textured in Substance Painter, and rendered in Maya/Vray.
Maya particles and FumeFX to produce the dust trails behind Herbie.
Cast: Michael Bonanno
