Last year, Tom Grammerstorf flew to summery South Africa to realize the first four motifs of the new Volkswagen AIK campaign. The ad motifs, brainchild of Grabarz & Partner, were realized by Tom using virtual photography directly on location with his new, mobile render farm – practically in real time. He even generated bees, trees and landscapes on the computer. Only the models and a few location elements were photographed in parallel and integrated into the CGI motifs. We present the first two motifs here on GoSee.
Directly afterwards, Tom photographed – also virtually – 55 MERCEDES-BENZ VANS motifs at the Cape for Daimler AG and Shanghai Berlin. His new flexible render unit was used again, enabling the team – feeling the pressure of the deadline – to create finished motifs on location. Support for both projects was in the hands of Cape Town Productions. Photos will follow after publication.
Created over the past few months were his own FULLY CGI works with which Tom Grammerstorf wants to find out where the limits in creative and technical terms are in virtual photography for him today. Judge for yourself! Since the beginning of 2018, Tom has been represented by Hamburg-based rep Kai Tietz under BRAIN by Tom Grammerstorf.
