All the Dirt

Student project title sequence for a mythical show called "overhaul underground" centered around car modding and restoring. The theme was grungy, hardcore, and a little creepy, with a focus on multiple parts being part of a larger whole. After a bit of brainstorming I hit upon the idea to have the actors names on the actual components themselves.

Originally this was going to be a fully CG project. However due to time constraints and the desire to have a lot of photo real dirt, projection mapping was chosen. High quality photos were taken and then projected onto 3D geo so they could be lit and animated. These elements were then composited together in AE.

This was my first ever projection mapping project. Some bits work great, others not. However the concept and design I still find pretty cool, and the photography process for this project was a lot of fun.
