This 50 second short demonstrates just how flexible 3D animation can be over traditional film footage methods. The whole 50 seconds animation is linear, no editing cuts were required. Post production items such as the HUD and copy / description were added in After Effects.
Concepts such as this would be difficult and very costly to produce on film. 3D animation gives you the freedom to realise your ideas and many of our clients are surprised when it's also within their budget to do this.
