Welcome to the Playground
For the Riot Games Arcane worldwide premiere on Netflix, VTProDesign designed one-month long immersive experience at Riot Games HQ in Santa Monica.
Yamashita’s process start with previz renderings, using precise 3D models of the venue to design the animations. This ensure the client and the production team to share the same vision, as well as creating such a large scale content that is hard to imagine during the pre-production stage.
Hextech Crystal, a kinetic sculpture amalgamating projections, lighting, and sound effects that guests could trigger by teaming up. Yamashita also designed animation that emerge on the overhead holographic projections.
Arcane Wall – a next-level Step & Repeat photo op, welcomed guests to the event. Many celebrities includes Hailee Steinfeld, Riot Games Executive team and show’s creators posed against our immersive backdrop. Yamashita has worked on physical wall design as well as camera studies to ensure the optimal experience both in-person and in the camera.
