Last year FranklinCovey approached our video production team with a challenge: Build a 3D animated world based around 2D photos of a character in very specific poses and different settings around an imaginary city and office building as he struggles to improve his business. The caveat being there wasn't time or budget to hire an actor or stage a photo shoot.
We went to work finding groups of stock photos featuring a single distinctive model whose body we could digitally chop apart, reorganize, repurpose, and repose to fit our needs. Then we did the same thing to assemble his team and built a 3D city from scratch including a canyon they would have to cross to reach their customers.
The result of this rather challenging process is a video we here at Impatient Cow Productions are quite proud of. Take a look at the video link above to see how we did it.
