Agent 008 Ball



Agent 008 ball is a great example of what is possible in today's web browsers. The game is built not using flash or silverlight but some javascript and html5. Gorgeous graphics are backed up by a James Bond-esque premise that adds to the overall experience.

It is also worth reading how the game was created on the nerdplusart.com blog

Using 3D technology pioneered by MIT scientists, the 2 minute spot will pit a monster truck against four Minis. Will the monster truck be able to jump over all four Minis?

Set the air this week the teasers on Mini's YouTube channel are fun to watch. Will it make it? Stay tuned...

For you production geeks. The film was directed by Robert Jitzmark, who employed a crew of 120, including six 3D technologists and scientists who were on hand to calculate the truck's chances, and film with a 21st century 3D rig. The set required 30,000 cubic yards of sand to be imported and the entire shoot from preparation to jump took six days to complete. A mix of stadium lights and special helium-filled balloon lights helped enrich the 3D quality.
