Hughes Corporation: Hughes Center Promo Animation

Big Picture Studios came to us with a video they were producing for the Hughes Center that needed an animation of the city of Las Vegas that highlighted where the property was located in relation to the rest of the city.

We decided to do a fun camera move that transitioned from outerspace, to a top-down view of the city, to a three-quarter view of the Hughes Center that would then transition into a practical shot from a drone camera.

This required us to model a simplified version of Las Vegas. The city of Las Vegas and all of the Hughes Center buildings were modeled and created in Cinema 4D utilizing the DEM Earth plugin.

We also made use of Cinema 4D's new 3D tracking to track the camera movement so we could seamlessly transition from our animation to the drone footage.
