Fanatec GT DD Pro
DIRECTION / DESIGN
Fanatec brings the virtual world of sim racing into the real world by putting it right in our hands. Their GT DD PRO direct drive wheel lets its user feel every texture of the road at high speed. I worked with Race Service's Rod Chong on the creation of this companion piece to the launch of Gran Turismo 7. The spot features pro driver Sara Choi.
FANATEC GT DD PRO [0:59]
A digital version of pro driver Sara Choi builds the only official direct drive wheel for Gran Turismo, the GT DD PRO.
The production involved the volumetric capture of Sara at Metastage. This process generated a 3D version of her performance that could be viewed from any angle. All the final shots for the spot were generated in post production by filming this 3D performance with a virtual camera animated in Maya by CG Supervisor Mike Fabris.
CAD files were used to create the X-ray views of the GT DD PRO's direct drive, which is able to generate up to 8 Nm of torque.
