In this full CGI Polestar1 project Anton collaborated with Curve Digital. The concept was to not only create a car in CG but to also create its environment. Anton supplied visual reference from Nordic locations, including tree types, islands, road shapes, and architectural designs.
One of the most important points was to create the correct type of light - Anton wanted to have the mist and mood of a Scandinavian morning. Curve approached this by experimenting with volumetric fog and various kinds of CG noise. This in combination with sun position generated the appropriate look.
Nick Limb, CEO of Curve said: "We loved the challenge of working on this project with Anton, and the beauty of using full CGI gave us the ability to control the light whilst retaining the delicacy of the mist/fog, which was essential for the final overall look and feel."
