Thinking Particles

A short little project I shot in Romania about 2 years ago on one of the best mountain roads in Europe. Me together with a few friends and colleagues did the vfx, mostly after work hours with a last push being supported by the company we work for in terms of resources, budget for sound/music/ final grading and render power. I work as a supervisor at Flavor3d (, the film and print division of RTT (

The material was shot in the course of 2 days from the back of my car with a Canon 5D. The idea came about while watching a comparison between the old 1970 Boss 302 and the new 2013 model. Unfortunately they discontinued the Boss model for 2014 which is too bad as it was a nice looking car.

After finishing it, we were very fortunate to have these guys do the music and soundFx : Very cool company to work with.

The grading was done by Peter at , another amazing post production house in Munich.
