Toyota – Shortcut

Commercials - VFX



A father and daughter’s everyday trip to school quickly becomes a wild, cinematic journey fit
for a blockbuster action film. The rapidly paced spot features a slew of environmental effects,
utilizing a procedural and modular approach to dissect and simplify the process. Extensive
research, data collection, reference material and schematics were employed, along with
drone-based photogrammetry and a number of LIDAR-sweeps for detail.
