Nate Rodriguez-Vera shares his journey from music to design, and from 2D into 3D, in this NAB 2018 Rewind. You’ll see how easy it is to get started in 3D design and learn some of the tricks Nate has picked up as in projects for Camper Shoes and Trident Gum. You’ll see how to arrange simple shapes and use Booleans to create a geometric design used as the hero image for Camper’s lookbook. For the Trident spot, Nate used C4D’s Cloner object and Dynamics, and added a fluid simulation via the X-Particles plugin. Finally, Nate reveals the power of exploiting perspective, and you’ll see how simple models arranged in just the right way helped him create imagery highlighting various shoes in the Camper campaign.
