“Ready Player One” | 3D Scene & Teaser Trailer
[An original 4K, 3D scene created within Cinema 4D, After Effects, and Element 3D. 2016.]

After reading READY PLAYER ONE by Ernest Cline, I immediately fell in love with the book. I’m an avid reader, but I’ve never connected to a book like I did with RPO. I was so inspired to create after finishing the book, I wanted to contribute my take on one of the crucial scenes in the story, in the form of a trailer. This scene is where Wade Owen Watts (a.k.a. Parzival) discovers James Halliday’s (the creator of the OASIS) perfect score on a vintage Pac-Man arcade game. The scene takes place in the Gregarious Games break room on Archaide.

Thanks for watching!

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Read it and be inspired to create.
