With building blueprints provided by the city of Chico, students in the CAGD program primarily worked to recreate Ken Grossman's original brewery in virtual reality. This makes it possible to tour the old brewery and understand the rich history of Sierra Nevada.
Students in the J&PR department researched details about Sierra Nevada's history to provide the most accurate story possible. Working between CAGD and MADT students, they built the story told throughout these four multimedia elements.
Students in the MADT department filmed, edited and collaborated with each other to produce the Bottleshop videos in both 2D and 360 formats. They spent hours filming at the Bottleshop, working with the client in their audio recording studio and creating animation graphics.
Six teams present ideas to the class of creative concepts for the Bottleshop video. Two teams ideas are selected to be merged into the final project
Office assets and building dimensions are agreed on.
All dimensions, color schemes and assets are finished being planned and ready to be built.
Three students prepared to pitch the class ideas to the client. Other students supported the pitch team through the creation of graphics and visual aids including a storyboard, presentation deck and pitch booklet for the client.
The MADT film team enters the Bottleshop with the Blackmagic Design URSA Mini 4K Camera for the first time. Film locations are also chosen for the 360 camera.
The final script, revised by two members of our pitch team, is agreed on by the rest of the film team.
To better represent the warehouse in VR the team met with Bart, a Sierra Nevada Employee who saw the original building. They are given the OK to finalize plans and start building.
Filming is wrapped up with a drone shot of a Sierra Nevada delivery to a local business.
Students begin sound editing, color correction and shot selection.
Files are finally able to be exported and uploaded onto Facebook and YouTube for testing.
A linear edited version of the 360-Degree Video is finally put together.
360-Degree Video is finalized and presented to Sierra Nevada Brewing Company on Vimeo.
Final models are sent over to two members of the VR team to build the tour in Unity.
Minor improvements are added to the warehouse build.
VR tour is completely ready for download and use.
All multimedia files are finalized and passed to Sierra Nevada. Course website goes live.
