Madhat asked me to join their team for the 2017 Audi Summit where the new Audi A8 was supposed to be presented on a KUKA robotic arm. On top of that, a 42 meter wide and 7.5 meter tall LED wall had to be animated for the part which was about 6 minutes long.
That part also included a live projection onto the car from different perspectives enveloping it completely in animated content. Therefore, a customized software was written by the amazing programmers @Madhat to calculate the correct projection for each projector.
My parts included about a month of R'n'D with different particle, shading and animation setups and two more months of animation and rendering.We were given an amazingly huge amount of creative freedom during the layout- & styleframing-phase that resulted in a mixture of the artists’ individual styles in the final show.
My parts of the show were the quattro sequence depicting the falling onto the 'cloth', styleframing the quattro landscape with the silver pistons, the electrifying-sequence as well as the sensors sequence afterwards, the particle explosion, the digital city and the tunnel sequence right before the finale.
We also had to set up a pipeline for the robotic arm movements so the artists were able to animate it as they like while still maintaining a physically possible arm movement.
My part in the project took about 3 months.
