TerraX – Die Spur des Geldes

TerraX – Die Spur des Geldes

info   client: cinecentrum / ZDF genre: documentary year: 2014 tools: blender, photoshop, after effects       TerraX Last year we created the graphics, FX and animations for two episodes of the documentary series “Terra X” for the german TV station ZDF. These episodes, called “Spur des Geldes” (the path of money), cover the origins and evolution of money, where coins came from, who printed the first bank notes and how the credit system was invented. We had to animate several historic maps, do animated 2.5D paintings, chapter transitions, 3D animations of books, coins and maps and create several VFX and overlays for the moderations. Our main tools were Blender, Photoshop and AfterEffects. Production took place between November and December 2014. We worked in a small team to finish the different tasks.
