Part 1: Coloured pencil. Ideation. was shot in a new and unique style that is different from any educational video you have seen before. The main difference between this film and traditional video tutorial is that the process of making it was the same as making a real movie. The use of multiple dynamic cameras and special movie equipment, such as rails, cranes, and steadicams allowed us to create captivating and dynamic narrative video that describes the process of sketching a car. We also paid special attention to choosing the right sound tracks and mixing them with the video. Our major achievement was the use of visual effects to better demonstrate techniques applied throughout the process. Altogether, it resulted in an absolutely new approach that no one has ever used before. Unlike typical video tutorials, it engages you in a creative atmosphere and keeps you entertained. It is not just another video lesson. It is a movie.
The film consists of 6 parts, introduction, and afterword. Each part demonstrates the process of sketching a vehicle and describes techniques that have been used. Every part also ends with a summary and detailed explanation supported by the visuals. In this video, the emphasis is placed not as much on the technical aspects of drawing, as on the fast development of a theme during the initial ideation process. Full length of the video is 28 min
"We didn’t make this film just to show you some sketching techniques. Sketching cars for us is more than a job; it’s our passion. We wanted to deliver the spirit and the atmosphere in which designers work and create. To achieve that, we have done tremendous amount of work and spent countless number of sleepless nights working on special effects. We obviously had to put much more effort than just put a designer at the table, set our camera on a tripod and push the “REC” button, as it’s usually done when making educational videos. We wanted to avoid boredom and monotony at all cost. We hope that the viewers will appreciate our efforts. Please, keep in mind that this is our first film made in such a format and some aspects of it could be questionable. But either way, it’s up to a viewer to decide."
