Autodesk (360/VR Automotive Video)


Deep Sky and Visual Aid worked with Autodesk to produce a 360 experience showcasing a team collaboration developing a concept vehicle.

Daniel provided and translated data into vertice points within an OBJ, but additional … Read More

The Core


Our internal CGI short created entirely in C4D and composited in AE. With a little in-between time we wanted to create an abstract sci fi short to showcase some of our motion design chops. Our animated logo is a slight nod to our favorite show the year ‘Stranger Things’. Enjoy!

NASCAR Racing Challenge


In a 1 week period we pitched and produced this fun 3D animated intro for Microsoft’s Racing Challenge. Being limited by the CGI rendering turnaround, we opted for lower poly vehicles and track environment, focusing our efforts on the vehicles and camera animation. The final addition was sound effects design which really brings energy and excitement to the video.
