AixSponza: Red Bull F1 Singapore

To promote Red Bull’s upcoming F1 race in Singapore, Munich-based AixSponza recreated part of the island nation’s pristine downtown area and staged a virtual high-speed test lap starring Mark Webber.

The promo feels as much like a video game trailer as it does a driver’s introduction to the race—a fitting mix for the event and its demographic. Giving equal attention to the glittering architecture and the glistening cars, the cameras swoop dramatically in and out of the action for a cinematic aesthetic that’s epically svelte.

Great animation and camera angles.
Looks too much like a game trailer to me though.
Great piece nevertheless! :-D

Really stunning work!
I have to agree that it goes more towards video game aesthetics than realism, which is fine I think. VRay also seems to do a terrific job here. Definitely have to look into that one day.
Nothing more left to say than: Go Sponzis!
