This game cinematic for NFS was an ambitious project. It required a huge team of people and a film like pipeline to be completed. The unusual format (360 degrees view, 8000 pixels wide and 45 frames per second!) and sheer complexity of the sequences presented a great challenged to us all. I looked after all the atmospherics and FX rigs, for things like skid marks, sparks, flying paper, dust, smoke etc. The final film was then projected on a circular screen at NAB Las Vegas and also became the cinematic for the actual game.
