She liked the sea awarded at the AOP awards
Driving without a steering wheel.A car that takes you independently to the next destination.
For some, a redemptive vision. You sit relaxed, like in a train and can enjoy the passing landscape without being stressed behind the steering wheel.
For others, a still challenging idea to leave the driving control to the car.With the C360 Volvo is just going this way. No driverseat, no stearingwheel. Just a nice interior where you sit opposite to eachother like sitting in a train compartment with big windows and a Gull-Wing Door to one side.We thought it’s a very exciting subject and created a virutal trip with a small team of photographer, retoucher and CG-operator. A visual road trip through Scandinavias wideness.
Landscapes and spheres were shot in Norway with a small cube and fast set-up, - after that the cars were rendered and integrated in the sceneries. The people were shot on half a day around Stuttgart and integrated afterwards in the existing landscapes. Time will tell if and how fast this way of travelling will become reality…
