BMW brings us an epic advertisement highlighting the power of exploration in their X1 series – that visceral feeling when you’re throttling the pedal on a quality car.
Those are some seriously intense visual effects – kind of reminds me of that scene in Inception where the whole place just flips in on itself.
BMW X1 ‘The Wave’ Director’s Cut
Here is my latest collaboration with Time Based Arts and director Sebastian Strasser, this time for an epic BMW spot. I looked after the entire waterfall section of the commercial, animating, rendering and compositing the mountains, trees and waterfalls. It was an interesting challenge to create believable waterfall sims at such large scale, particularly for the wide shot. Many thanks to Graham Matthew Collier for the helpful tips
