Rick Chou and Lee Waters of Blue Sky CGI and their team of visionary artists always do their homework. That’s why the biggest names in transportation branding keep coming back to them.
Recently they were asked by Boeing Marketing to develop a CG model of the Boeing 737 MAX to be used in the future for still images, animations and other VR/CGI content. The new Boeing 737 MAX is to be the airline's most profitable single-aisle aircraft ever and is being designed to offer the greatest flexibility, reliability and efficiency in the single-aisle market. In order to provide the most accurate CGI model of the airplane, scout photography of actual airplanes was an important part of the process.
Blue Sky CGI photographers boarded two 737 airplanes and took hundreds of photos for detailed references. The team had to model the entire interior of a 737 MAX 8 in two-tiered class configurations for business-class seats and economy-class seats. No detail was spared. Everything got the 3D treatment including: rigging and articulating the seats for greater comfort, galleys, overhead bins and bin interiors for more storage space, lavatories and doors inside and out and a full flight-deck.
Blue Sky CGI has created a modern model that highlights an enhanced sense of spaciousness and flexibility through lighting and selected camera perspectives. The model will be available for distribution within Boeing and to its customers. The forward-thinking model takes us back to a more glamorous time when we all wanted to be grownups, flying in style with a touch of luxury, relaxation and a martini in hand.
Cheers to our Blue Sky CGI team for taking us back to the future!
