These are matte painting of Vegas with 2D animation.
For this one, I had just a picture, fixed.... I put some movment in it with short videos, layers animations. I add all the lights, replace the sky, animated the cars, color corection...Fire and smoke are stockshots. I made the matte with 3D layers in After Effects to have some relative during the travelling.
very fun to do :) 2 weeks
