london 2012 olympic velodrome animation by chemical brothers + crystal CG

‘velodrome’ animated video by the chemical brothers + crystal cg

in a collaboration between british electronic duo the chemical brothers and designed by british  digital company crystal cg, an animation based off the olympic velodrome was conceived as a  part of the ‘rock the games initiative’. the video features a tron-styled neon wireframe that illustrates an intense futuristic cycling duel between two riders racing around the track, where the  commissioned melody adds a dynamic perspective into each of the choreographed animated sequences.
