3D Visualisation of Edinburgh Castle, Esplanade and Royal Mile

Playdead was one of three suppliers who created graphics for the BBC Scotland, 2-part series, Britain Beneath Your Feet.  We created a 3D visualisation of Edinburgh to show how the castle is built on an ancient volcanic plug with the Royal Mile following the path of the glacial tail - all from the view point of below ground, looking up.
Playdead produced two other sequences - a 3D coal mine showing how the lift shaft descends in to the ground with the mines exploring the seams of coal.  The final sequence is a relic from the Cold War; a nuclear bunker located outside Edinburgh.  All the sequences were built in 3D Studio Max and then composited in After Effects.
