Red Bull

I was very excited to work on the 3D visualization for another extreme wintersports event, Red Bull Sledhammers. This is a head-to-head snowmobile race through an intricate, challenging 550m course designed by the masterful Quebec-based crew, Today’s Parks. 64 competitors came together for the event, held at Ski La Réserve. The event combines elements of both hillclimb and snowcross.

As with our previous work on the Empire Games events, Today’s Parks provided me with detailed hand-sketched diagrams of the entire course. I modeled each feature in Maya, and then assembled the entire course in Unreal Engine 4. Then I animated the icons that represent each snowmobile competitor to provide this preview of the event. Red Bull then hosted the video for their event site here.

You can see footage of the completed course here:
