Recreating the old DDR Berlin – and adding a cute parade of 3D “Trabbis”!
The task was to first clean up the plate and remove the huge construction site, recreating the buildings and elements that were covered. For that purpose, I made a quick setup in Maya to have a proper visual guide of the perspective. Then the DDR buildings had to be brought back, the trees cut down in size and years – and a group of parking 3D Trabbi cars brought in to get the DDR feeling right.
