Social benefit hotel idea by Jeremy Cowart. The team at CliffCo and I were tasked to produce a video that could build hype and interest in a hotel that would benefit different causes all around the world. I had the challenge of imaging a colorful, beautiful hotel room that carried the heart of this social benefit hotel chain. The Kickstarter was successful in raising over $750,000.
One of the obstacles to production was GPU bandwidth. This project required a lot of 3d rendering at 4k from Octane, a third party rendering software. I did not have access to more than my own workstation's GPU power, and so pushing about 1500 frames through the machine necessitated several weeks of nonstop rendering, tweaking, and re-rendering.
Ultimately I learned a lot about workflow, bandwidth, organization, and planning for future projects.
