EuroCopter – “The History and Future” – Live Media Presentation/Helicopter Reveal

Motion Direction: Francis De La Torre

January 5, 2013

8Bit Films work with Exhibit Lighting Group to produce EuroCopter’s live presentation, that would reveal it’s brand new EC-130 T2, live at the HeliExpo in Dallas, TX. The presentation was a whimsical, masterpiece theater like story, which followed the history of EuroCopter through a nostalgic, completely 3D book. The book would be displayed on a 50 x 15 screen behind the Master of Ceremonies, hiding the actual EC-130 T2 behind it. Timing the book to a script, the presentation had direct interactions with the M.C. like page turns, dust blown off the cover, photos coming to life, live sketch rendering of the EC-130 T2, and a precision kabuki drop that revealed the physical helicopter on stage for the crowd to see.

Here are some of our favorite moments from the presentation. (Be sure to watch in HD)
