Honda Helmets: Formation

In its campaign to promote its newest line of helmets, Honda decided to make a 100% 3D film, developed by Lightfarm at the invitation of Y&R. Under the motto “Protect Your Freedom”, the purpose of the video was to demonstrate all Honda Technology and safety contained in their helmets. To produce the video, our team used Cinema 4D, Octane, Houdini, Redshift and Zbrush.

“Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation.” ― William Gibson, Neuromancer
Inspired by William Gibson’s Neuromancer book cover beautifully designed by Josan Gonzalez, Lightfarm’s CG Artist Rafael Mococo only used a free open source 3D software called Blender and it’s renderer called Cycles. Lightfarm’s Director Milton Menezes, photographed himself as the Neuromancer and finished up the Post Production in Photoshop.

Pet Nativa

“Your order has shipped. Prescription pet food they’ll go crazy for.” In this campaign produced by Area 23 for Pet Nativa, which specializes in natural food for animals, the pets are so crazy about the arrival of the food that pretend to be mail boxes. To create both the dog and cat scene, Lightfarm mixed CGI elements with stock images in the post production.
