The creative direction for the project was based on an idea from the Astros staff to create a 2D environment that has a 3D look with movement, depth of field player highlights and headshots. We created this look with digital pictures of different areas of the metro Houston area. We then cut the pictures up and assembled them in 3D layers to create the movement and depth of field.
We also created a 3D animation of the Astros train for 2 of the key scenes. Lighting and particles were created in After Effects and motion tracked into the scenes. Sound effects were added as well as a sound track edited to
match the animation.
