After creating 3 super successful 30-second video advertisements for Carpenter’s Tru Cool pillow, Metro Productions put together a short behind the scenes look at some of the aspects of our production process.
I used to make graphics and I still do. Some are old and some are new. Either way they’re here for you. Hip hip hooray and whoop-de-doo!
Last year I worked on a very complicated animation that involved learning about and basically creating every piece inside of 3 different types of transmissions. It was awesome! I don’t think many animators would get as excited as I was about learning the mechanics of how a transmission works, but along the way I became very interested in the fascinating properties of a set of always-connected gears with varying ratios of teeth to handle shifting power flow. In motion, this gear set shows how the teeth can all be spinning at once and nothing jams up. I might export the animation soon, but for now have a look at this render!
