A video showing an edited down version of the H.P. Extreme Testing video.
Made to highlight the extreme tests Hewlett Packard put their tape storage media through. We animated over 250,000 cartridges tumbling. They start by falling off of an office desk, tumble up a hill which represents Alaska, then on the back of a bike down to Chile, across the Sahara, over a bridge into the Jungle then along a Drag Strip to the summit of Mt.Everest. A cartridge is then flown through the skies on a paramotor, which crashes into the atlantic and triggers wave of tumbling and pushes a boat across the Atlantic. Which leads to a mixture of steps, servers, flames and rocket launches to help make for a very grand finale.
It was brought to life using the latest 2D and 3D design software after some in-depth storyboarding and project planning.
The edit seen here is a minute and half shorter than the full thing which included a voiceover and various 3d billboards with key marketing messages.
