YouTube Rewind 2018: Everyone Controls Rewind
YouTube Rewind 2018 has arrived! We were brought on to head up the VFX heavy lifting for this annual project which has become one of the most anticipated events on the internet. The video, which highlights the year’s biggest trends, stars, music and memes on YouTube, premiered on the platform via livestream to over 160,000 people, hit #1 on trending and cruised past 30 million views in the first 24 hours.
As creators ourselves, we were thrilled to contribute to this amazing celebration of creativity. Not only did we get to bring YouTube comments to life, but we also got to fly a bus through the sky and send a convertible to space along with a bunch of other nifty things. Not bad for a Thursday.
We had a blast collaborating with our friends at Portal A on this project and couldn’t be more proud of our team, special shoutout to Josiah Reeves and Cameron Ake, and all the hard work they put in to making this year’s YouTube Rewind a smash!
