Recon Instruments introduces the first head-mounted display system for goggles.
An integrated display with GPS functionality.
Bringing fighter pilot technology to a goggle. Live statistics and GPS right in front of your eyes, measuring speed distance, height and time. This product truly is amazing, snowboarding, skiing and snowmobiling will never be the same.
Recon Instruments wanted us to produce a high impact 3D presentation of their unique technology. We were supplied engineering files of the goggles and hardware to work with.
After texturing the goggles to a photo real level, we began designing the environment we would be showcasing the goggles in the 3D sequences. Lots of compositing was required to add in additional text, motion graphics and snow. We planned and rendered out one main camera move to follow the voice over track, with several additional camera moves that we would be using for the interference and twitch sequences.
We created a high impact motion graphic logo intro and using B roll footage supplied to us we added motion graphics to the jump sequences. Then edited all the parts together with original music tracks, one of which was developed in house which we called Twitchin.
This was a really fun project to work on as the client gave us complete freedom to do what we wanted. The only brief we received was; “Just make it look cool!”
Sit back, turn up the speakers and enjoy!
