Hop Wheels – 3D Animation (1 min)

This was a university computer 3D animation project back in 2001. The brief was to create a toy advert. I chose to spoof the Hot Wheels toy cars and create a toy car chase loosely influenced my the movie ‘The Italian Job’.

The toy car chase takes place on a dining room table via household objects like a book, kitchen roll and a ruler.

The video was created using Houdini for 3D animation and Adobe Premier for editing.

Now I’ve returned to 3D animation and the tools have moved on, but it’s interesting to look back at what was achievable by a computer science student in 2001.
