Digital reconstruction of a Protestant church
I had the great honor and possibility to collaborate with the local museum and make a 3 minutes long animation about building the city's first brick building.
1714. The tower with a regular slate roof
Even though the city has been mentioned officially in a document back in 1266, the first solid building, the Protestant church in the middle of the city and the tower was built only in 1714. Over the years the church expanded and went through several iterations. My task was to visualize these iterations with nice looking camera movements and subtitles.

This animation was part of a larger permanent exhibition about the town's history and origins.

The whole project was very personal because during my middle-school years we had to attend this church on several occasions.

The following images are the crucial parts, but there were more, smaller iterations as well.
1723. the first large expand, the nave
1742. To protect the church they built a wall around it with crneels and a granary
1789. Some additional elements
1890. At full glory it looked like this. Small businesses and manufactures rent small shops from the Protestant church. It was demolished in 1961.
1890. The other side of the church. This part of the wall and the small door near the camera still exists!
1961. This is how it looks like in the present.
Because it is in the middle of the city, the museum can give me some very useful and high-quality photographs. I had to build up everything based on these.
One of the earliest image of the church was painted by the famous painter of our town János Tornyai back in 1889.
As always, the whole project was made with MODO902. Following images shows some screengrabs from 1890. :)

And the screen with my animation running. I really feel honored to be part of this large exhibition!
