The 90s


The second commercial I worked on for Psyop recently aired, promoting a National Geographic special about the 1990s. You can watch it here.

Its creation involved revisiting a title that greatly influenced my childhood: Simcity. The visuals needed to be similar enough to evoke nostalgia, but at a finer granularity to ensure that OJ's white Bronco would be recognizable.

Here's a detail still of the beachfront. The repeated tiles not only reflect Simcity's game play but also save on creation time.
