Bell Textron

Working at Sector5Digital, I've had the great privilege of working with a giant and a long time aerospace manufacturer in Bell Flight, also before known as Bell Helicopters. A link to their site can be found here. Our studio has helped in a team effort with Bell to develop future flight in AR, VR and also manufactured builds of future vehicles. Below is the work I've been a part of.  

Bell FCX-001 Concept 
Working along side with a great team of talented artist and engineers, our job was to deliver a new concept, in air design, that would help show Bell's design of future flight. My job was in the modeling, texture and lighting department phase for the FCX-001 concept. A pipeline from drawn concept, to modeling, to engineering, and finally to manufacturing would be implemented to complete this for the Heli-Expo 2017 show in Dallas, Texas.

Bell Nexus Concept
Working alongside a great team of talented engineers, our job was to deliver a new concept in air vertical lift to be shown in CES 2019. Thus, the Bell Nexus would become the future of Air Taxi travel. My job was in the modeling and lighting department phase for the Bell Nexus. Below are renders of my work on the Bell Nexus for CES 2019. They are both exterior and interior work done in Max and Vray.

The following shots are a breakdown of my beginning to end process of the Bell Nexus, as well as the FCX. As mentioned earlier, I was in charge of helping the modeling and lighting. The following is my process: 
  1. Modeling of the Bell Nexus started in 3ds Max. The concept of the model, both exterior and interior, was a collaboration between engineers, artists and directors.
  2. Once the model was complete and textured, I would begin making renders of the Bell Nexus in different backplate environments. This ranged from the Bell Nexus on the ground and in the air.
  3. Next, I began to brainstorm with the marketing team of Bell on best approach to tease this amazing interior and exterior. It was a great team effort all around. 
  4.  Last was to composite the final video package for the tease before CES 2019. I used After Effects 2019.
