This was the most intense series of web banners that I've ever helped to create. Yes thats right, these animations are actual web banners for Cars.com. In this four part series, I was responsible for 2D animation of particle systems, the Compositing of live action footage over/ with CG elements, and the modeling and animating of 3D environments specifically in the Car Chase animation. That heavy load was all part of these interactive web banners that the viewer could click on to advance in the scene and "Add More Drama" to the hero's situation. The videos above are screen captures of the ads on the actual websites that they are featured on. This series of animations we created while freelancing with Superfad in Seattle.
