Title: This Is Now - Web Animation Project for Microsoft/Ford
Name: Giorgos Chronopoulos
Country: United Kingdom
Software: 3ds max, Flash, Maya, Photoshop, VRay
This is a still from a web based animation project www.this-is-now.co.uk I worked on as part of a team formed by Nevil Slade MD of New Media Design company Theory7 Ltd based in Kent, UK.
the project was to promote the New Ford Fiesta but also involved many other companies including Microsoft.
My role was as one of the main Modelers, being responsible for the modeling and texturing and in many cases design of all but one of the high detail focus points in the virtual city beginning with the Market areas which features the Sign Post from which you can navigate to the other areas.
The other areas I created were Art Street, Technology Street, Fashion (Selfridges), Style Tree and Music.
Along with the main areas I also created some of the other areas in between including some skyscrapers and boats.
