Custom 3D Animated Viral Videos – Amazing DreamLight Trick Shot Video

With the rise of viral videos on social media including YouTube & Facebook we set out to create our own custom sample of 3D animated viral videos. With 3D animated viral videos we can push social media viral videos beyond reality. We started with a concept of what would initially appear to be a typical camcorder held trick shot video of a photo-realistic bowling alley. We would slowly build the viewer’s anticipation toward an expected outcome as they watch a heavy bowling ball slowly roll down the alley and curve into the bowling pins. Then at the final point of impact we would surprise the viewer with a totally unexpected outcome of a humorous, magical and surreal result. The bowling ball magically transforms into a lighter than air balloon bouncing off the pins and floating up into the air. We were aiming to give the viewer the feeling of watching an unexpected magic trick. At that point we reveal that it was all created in CGI as we display the tag line: Rise Above Reality with DreamLight Animation. What better way to make viral videos catch the viewer’s imagination than by using custom 3D animated viral videos that truly rise above reality?

The models were built in Modo. The models were then brought into LightWave 3D where the scene was set up using instancing with gradients and instance ID along with slight mesh displacement to vary the instances’ geometry and textures. All texturing, lighting, animating and rendering were done in LightWave 3D. Network rendering was done with DreamLight Constellation of course.


We were honored to present the world premiere of our first Amazing Trick Shot Video sample of 3D animated viral videos at a lecture that Michael Scaramozzino presented to the MIT Animation Group on 11/19/17. The lecture was about the DreamLight 3D CGI Animation Production Process and was followed by a book signing of Michael’s book: Creating a 3D Animated CGI Short.
