Kinda like watching a Civ cut-scene.

Ha! That was great. Even the camera angles are just right.

Groan-worthy reddit-tier headline though, sorry subby.

I'm setting all of my BIM models to this song now.

HEY!  Is this the USA or what??

Where are the slaves?  Are they supposed to be invisible or something?  That shiat didn't get built by magic.

It was pretty obvious, and then it just got old by the second time playing the theme in the same video.

Should've had some nudity halfway through it to get through the exposition.

And it looks like the animator got lazy too.

Awesome. A few tweaks like making the ID's for the buildings as they go up a bit larger and clearer as well as maybe a bit on their purpose on the side, but great work

Not enough nudity in that video - kinda obvious.

Also not enough penises and nipples getting hacked off.

I love the last shot with all the Masonic symbols coming together. It's obvious there are still a few more symbols to be formed.

Not at the end times yet!

Great perspective.

Would've been a lot better if they'd sped up the video the same way they do on GoT, finish the score in one loop.

Yeah, Autodesk will get wind of this & release a version upgrade costing another 10k that will require a whole new workstation.

Fark you Autodesk.

All thats missing is for them to start murdering each other.

I'm glad we have all those buildings for them to not make laws in.
 
2013-07-19 08:09:44 AM  
Why didn't they just build up instead of out?

D.C. law says something like the buildings cannot be higher than ... I think the statue on the Capitol building.

I brush my teeth to that music

OK, that was cool, but who the hell is the "Architect of the Capitol"? Sounds kinds ominous.

Heights of Buildings Acts of 1899 & 1910 set limits on the height of buildings in the Capital.
Basically you can't build higher then 130 feet or the width of the street you front on, whichever is lower. Some special cases (radio towers) are allowed, some buildings are grandfathered in, and the Federal Government is outside the regulation.

Slaves? They should at least be thanked...

He looks harmless enough.

From what I can gather, this is one of the major players in that office.

The people who do the maintenance and supply for the Capitol complex, which is all of the buildings you see there, from the Capitol itself to the US Botanical gardens. If you work on the Hill and need a new phone or desk, that's who you call. They also do some pretty serious historical preservation work on the artwork and on the Capitol itself. And empty garbage bins (though I think they contract for some of that part). And public education about the Capitol complex (like Capitol tours), which is what that video would be from.

Pretty un-ominous, really.

You may find this to be useful. The purposes are pretty much what you'd expect.

Meh, "Architect of the Capitol" isn't at all ominous when compared to one of the Vice President's neighbours at the Naval Observatory: The Director of Time.
