about

This stop motion video was created by Vanguard Pictures as the next installment in the Nitro Warriors saga, which also doubled as an advert for a new line of toys from Hot Wheels. The film was also featured at a series of film festivals.

The director, Paul Greer, really pulled out all the stops. Along with building miniature sets for the cars to race in, 3D scultures were printed and over 25000 shots were taken to bring this film to life. My brief was to utilise the miniatures to create matte paintings to make the environment feel truly epic despite the toy cars' diminuitive size.
