WELCOME TO WACKEN
Welcome to Wacken is an interactive virtual reality documentary that takes you deep inside Germany’s Wacken Open Air — the biggest heavy metal festival on Earth. A story in five parts, from Secret Location and Banger Films, Welcome to Wacken invites you to experience the festival through the eyes of the fans and truly feel why Wacken is the Mecca for metalheads everywhere.
I was the Lead 3D artist on the project, responsible for modelling, lighting, layout, motion graphics animation and engine integration of the interactive ‘lobby’ portion of the experience. Modelled as a papercraft version of the sprawling mass of the festival itself, The lobby underwent many iterative revisions as well as many functional overhauls. Some of this work is captured in the ‘Behind The Scenes’ section below.
