To challenge myself, I created this series using a single 3D model that I created in Blender, an open-source 3D graphics application. I decided to focus on the iconic bottle design from Coca Cola which was founded right here in Atlanta, GA. Using photo references and careful measurements I modeled, textured, and animated each of these concepts.

The challenge was to show the breadth of creative ideas that could come from a single 3D model. The solution was to use different motion design techniques and 3D environment settings to create a range of creative looks for various channels.
