The Best School Trip Ever
We provided 3D printed rockets that moved along a set path, all with real smoke effects.
The effect required was intentionally lo-fi with the rockets being manually pushed along a track by hand.
HOW WE DID IT
We were able to extract the rockets from the pre-visuals provided by the Stripeland team so they were exactly as referenced. We then adapted the design to allow a pyrotechnic smoke generator to fit inside. The rocket was then 3d printed and hand-finished in red and white.
The track which the rocket rode along was again extracted from the pre-visual provided and CNC routed to produce a profile. A simple but effective buggy was designed and fabricated making use of the humble skateboard wheel. The manual nature of this action gave the desired home-made effect.
