Introduction

The PHT Suite intro movie is part of an interactive cd rom created to market PHT Suite, an internet customization software product. When the cd rom promo starts, the viewer is presented with the video introduction designed to show the power of customizing web sites in a fun and exciting fashion.

To accomplish this task, I envisioned a roller coaster like camera move from a web page, through the internet to a server computer and back again.

After initial storyboarding was done for the sequence, I took apart one of the computers at work and measured the components that would be created in 3d. For the interior computer case fly throughs, the objects are to scale with each other but the distances between these objects were increased for a more dramatic and less cluttered effect.

The intro movie appears as one fluid camera move but it was actually modeled in 4 distinct stages. Which were composited carefully to appear as one shot.
