This is just the opener from a larger sports package that consisted of a few graphical elements. I wanted to give this a lot of punch as the boats themselves are rather impressive. Tried a few water simulations but in the end went for a more graphical look.
I wanted to use a lot of stock water elements in these motion graphics as well as I had shot heaps for another job and didn’t use them. I always try to include real vision in my motion graphics where ever I can, as it gives it something extra that you can’t get with simulations or just straight motion graphics themselves.
