You guys always blow my mind with this amazing animations.
This could be just a "F1 Fly Logo Opening Video" but you always make something special!
Thanks for this! :)

Just a question: How many days to make it?

The second part of the animation is fantastic, but the first part I think its look is not very good. I don't know if you used, but you should use the (Production Shaders) in CGI.

i THINK the first half of the animation is a live backplate with car/driver composited. There's no reflections going on in the car's mirrors, something that as soon as I noticed it, kind of bothered me. The second half is great! Really fun stuff, and really like the design of the track. Kind of futuristic matchbox cars.

Josh is right.

It's a live footage with the 3d car/pilot over it.
But the mirror reflects only the car on this camera position, Josh. You can check it on these video references:

even on this:

Pateta, we did it in 2 months and a half, but with other projects going on together.

Thanks for the coments, guys.
