April 30th is Dutch Queen's Day. Its a Holiday in Holland that celebrates the Queen mother Beatrix's birthday. the celebration in Holland is akin to the level of New Year's Eve here in the states.
This originally started off as just a jpeg image that I sent to my friend in Amsterdam. I had been reminded Queen's Day was coming up the day before so I whipped up the heraldry images in Illustrator and imported them into Cinema 4D. I did some tweaking to the image on the 30th and had it emailed that day.
This is draft 1 of the video. I'm going to add in exploding confetti next, I just wanted to test how the Object Motion blur came out.
