HONDA | Enchanted Odyssey
In this broadcast spot, a family traveling in a Honda Odyssey passes through a mountain tunnel that magically transforms into an enchanted vision of Disneyland. I was brought in as the technical director to design and execute the tunnel sequence. We created the sequence virtually in preproduction and captured the journey through the enchanted tunnel in-camera on an LED stage.
Prior to the shoot, we created a scale 3D version of the stage to visualize the tunnel sequence with real world measurements and camera specifications. This allowed us to predetermine the position of the car on the stage, the placement of the camera inside the car, the lens focal length, and focal distance to the LED screens for each shot before arriving on set.
As we created the exteriors for the enchanted journey, we tested them on the virtual stage to gauge the speed of the car as the exteriors passed by the window.
We finalized the sequence in preproduction and transferred the virtual exteriors to LED screens on the live action stage to capture final pixel in camera on the day of the shoot.
