Shift What's Possible

How do you show the engineering that went into creating International Truck's newest engine? The countless hours, and people all over the planet that helped create one of the most fuel efficient engines on the planet? You build it before their very eyes. When Secret Fort came to us with this idea we were super excited. Knowing that our friends at Dictionary Films were going to shoot the plates we needed to put the CG engine on, we did something we haven't done before. We began by cutting the spot in Unreal Engine. Before anything was shot or rendered, we collaborated with Cutters editor Kevin O'Brien and Dictionary Films Director Brian Broeckelman. Which made for a smooth shoot and edit process. Into post-production with a small army of 3D effects artists and finishers we brought it home.
