Ameritrade Holiday card was meant to convey what the holiday season feels like from coast to coast. SKAR agency came up with the pop-up book idea for the transitions for “Celebrating The Season Across America”.
The T2 design team utilized Maya, Aftereffects and Photoshop to create the fun and festive experiences in each part of the country. Enjoy!

I created this in E-on's VUE XStream 7. It is a test render showing how realistic VUE can be. Scene was rendered in multipasses and then composited in Adobe After Effects.
The scene shows a 747 coming at and over the camera at several thousand feet AGL.
The right outboard engine #4 will have an explosion which will show the engine catching fire and trailing smoke. Then two people will jump out of the plane, you only see them in the distance and then their parachutes open up. After the aircraft flies off screen to the left you see the chutes slowly drifting downward. Then there will be a number of seconds of just moving clouds for the DVD menu loop.
