This was our first 3D printed model. It is a product which was introduced by Douwe Egberts coffee a couple of years ago; the so-called Aromette. The product, made out of compressed coffee powder looks like a large coffee bean. As you buy it in the shops, the product is usually broken and unsuitable for filming. We needed to make “crisp” models for the pack shot and models made out of coffee powder, just like the product itself. These would be used for the special-effects shots.
Pre-visualisation for Amstel campaign
A beer sponsor wanted a stadium built out of glass felts. In order to see what the model might look like and to establish the proportions we made it first in 3D..
This is our rendering of the proposal for Amstel beer, to be used at the time of the Champions League final. The intention is to see if the “Arena” would be recognizable when built out of beer mats. As it turned out, in order to be able to read the Amstel logo, each beer mat would have to be printed individually with the design in a different position each time. The project is by Bates, Not Just Film in Amsterdam.
