Let It Fly (Lass es fliegen)
Space is becoming more and more an issue in urban areas and Munich is no exception. To combat this problem the cultural center and social association "Bellevue di Monaco" had the idea of flattening their roof to make room for a football pitch to create valuable space for kids to play.
nhb studios approached me to help with the commercial by designing and creating the CG version of the flying football pitch. The commercial is used to gather more interest and funds to support and finance this exciting idea.
A couple of rough digital scribbles to visualise the overall design of the floating football pitch. These helped in the process to decide wether to have ballons only at the four corners or spread across the edges. Drawn on iPad Pro with Photoshop Sketch. Because it was too time consuming to draw every balloon individually, a single huge balloon group was created in Adobe Illustrator. This was imported to Photoshop Sketch and duplicated across all four corners.
