The Great Food Truck Race

Client: Food Network via Big Picture Group BPG. Art Director Steph Sebbag. Project Date Summer 2010.

I just finished up building out a 3D model of a food truck to be used for Print and AV work on the new Food Network show "The Great Food Truck Race" which is premiering in a few weeks. I was tasked with building out a full 360 model of a food truck with a full interior. First I built the exterior of the truck with full undercarriage and dropped a placeholder h kitchen in from another file to test it. Once It was approved I rebuilt the interior as well from scratch to tear-sheet specs of actual product that would fit into a truck. The 30 Lb. fryer and 36" Griddle were in the script and needed to fit into the truck so I did a bit of space planning as well.

The models were all built as Quad models to receive a mesh smooth operation to procedurally increase the resolution for film. The files were then passed over to Dean Fowler who rigged the trucks to drive and did all final animation and texturing for the client. Renders were outsourced to a Render farm for quick HD turn around as well.

You can see a spot with the truck in it here.

Cheers, THOM
