How are the prints made?
Every image Automobilist create is based on a real-life historical event, with the aim to capture the moment from a fresh perspective using the wonders of modern technology. To ensure accuracy, research is conducted over weeks to piece each detail together and ensure it is accurate. Once the concept is established, the artists set to work creating a 3D model using CGI. Studying every piece of reference material available, the artists essentially build a car from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer of detail – even down to the correct number of coats of paint. Automobilist's attention to detail means an average of 1000 hours is devoted to rebuilding each vehicle. A single image requires approximately 2-3 months of craft, with a team of 8 highly talented individuals, and up to 50 cast and crew members. See part of the process for yourself in the video below.
