João Elias lässt aus Liebe einen Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing fliegen

21. Dezember 2020

João Elias liebt nicht nur seine Arbeit als CGI-Artist, sondern auch ganz besonders einen Oldtimer, nämlich den Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing (»Mövenflügel«), ein wirklich hübsches Auto. In dieser kurzen Hommage hat er beides sehenswert zusammengebracht:

Gullwing – Shortfilm


Have you ever seen a car spreading its wings? Now you do.

This is a full cgi shortfilm featuring the most iconic car of all time, the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, at least in my opinion…
I always loved this car, and when I first started this project, I didn’t just wanna make a car rolling by in the desert, I knew there was a bigger story to make, it had to fly.
Following its name legacy, I dived deep in this crazy rollercoaster of assembling car parts, raging though the desert of Bonneville salt flats, in order to build a full chassis so the flying body kit could land. After this, the rest is music. A symphony of a few animated shots of this beauty gloriously riding through the desert, creating clouds of smoke through the landscape while hearing that amazing engine roaring.
