Brief Create an opening sequence that demonstrates the scale and breadth of The National Lottery.
How it was done The sequence focuses on scenes from around the country linked by beams of light, which emerge at speed from a graphic representation of the Lotto draw ‘button push’.
The light streaks were created in After Effects by generating a 3D particle trail travelling in space.
Stephen Ryan and Dan Blore used After Effects to composite lighting effects to enhance the real look, adding in refl ections, shadows and lighting effects to bed the streaks into the background shots.
The lighting and texturing of the end title frame, created in Maya by Andy Power and Andy Budd, gave a sumptuous, polished finish to the text.
