Our friends at AviationLads took the time to participate in Orbx’s Fly July event by creating an extensive behind the scenes look at how they make cinematic trailers.
Speaking on his official blog, Maurice from AviationLads said, “it is my major objective to create additional value for developers by optimizing the way how they present their products and interact with the community.” He continued, “utilizing my long-time experience in graphics design, AviationLads produces high-quality flight simulation videos that will present your products in the best possible light.”
In the 12-minute video, Maurice takes us through the whole journey for how he created the trailer for Orbx’s Landmarks Dubai. From the early morning wake up and initial developer brief to the recording and final editing process, each element is detailed. Perhaps those aspiring to create trailers for the future will pick up a trick or two from Maurice’s video.
“Driven by our enthusiasm we support the community with a bunch of freeware stuff. Find out more about our visual mods, liveries and checklists. Through these additional services, we are perceived as a valuable member of the community,” Maurice concludes.
To celebrate, AviationLads and Orbx are hosting a giveaway to win some freebies. 1 Orbx EA-7 Edgley Optica is available to win, along with 3 products of choice from Orbx. You can enter the giveaway on the AviationLads website.
