Crash a plane for a zombie apocalypse film!

in 3D Modeling Design held by Goners Ken
Contest Closed
GONERS is a comedy/zombie film that's like Zombieland meets John Wick.

The film's completed. Your mission: add a crashing Cessa plane to the film's climactic 4-5 second scene:

The plane can be any color(s) as long as it looks real and explodes in a realistic ball of flames on the shoreline. Sample Cessna plane images:

Movement: the Cessna plane should not fly in front of the condo towers, as they will have separate smoke and flame effects. Instead, the Cessna can/should enter the shot in the foreground (at around 00:03 seconds), fly away from us and smash into the shore in distance.

It's okay if we keep seeing the explosion for a half-second after we fade to black.

Size: the Cessna plane (and shoreline crash explosion) should be proportionate to the shot, i.e. the explosion shouldn't get so massive that it obscures the condo towers.
Realistic-looking design, depth, colors, and movement.

Airplane crash VFX
Don't Wants:
I don't want cheesy, cartoon, fake effects. The plane and the fireball explosion should look real.

Samples welcome for version 1.

Thank you for entering!

Here's the ungraded shot:

This is proof-of-concept, 3.5-minute indie film teaser (shot on RED and 4K drone camera) to raise financing for our 2018 feature film project (total budget for this self-financed trailer is 4K). The feature will have a proper budget and a ton of effects.

I'd like to know how this is a CAD job? Animations in CAD software are 90% for displaying engineered products or machine parts. You are looking for a CGI animated scene... to do this correctly, the developer would need film footage of the area where the plane crash is to occur in the film, or at least footage that is assuredly not previously copyrighted, plus the software is not intended to display high velocity impact scenarios. This would have to be a very unconventional process in basic software. It would need to be rendered in Maya, 3D Studio Max or similar software. Unless someone on here has access to that software, and is willing to spend many hours working for little pay, I think you would be better off to try possibly using a home style blue screen sequence or possibly searching for a sequence of a crash that you could pay royalties to use... just a suggestion.

Fully respect what you're saying. I've boosted the pay and here's the ungraded shot for you to download and play with:

I wonder if the buyer realizes just how much time this takes in blender. It's 40 hours minimum, so basically $5 an hour.

The ungraded plate should also have the fade at the end removed

Can you supply an ungraded plate for tracking purposes

If you want some entries, you will need to make it prepaid,
The references you have provided are high end visual effects costing thousands, there is fire and smoke simulations, explosion simulations and plane wreck sims, which all require time to previz then to render, I would suggest increasing your payment to get people interested. I for one would be.
and once approved, to render.

Other fittings like top & bottom covers, rings and bottom button in rose gold.

3D design for a lovely four-leafs clover keyholder
I am looking for a model of a four-leafs clover key holder that would just make me and anyone else fall in love with. If selected it would be an exclusive design. I just need the design of the clover (not the keyring, chain, etc.). I have something very specific in mind. Of course, should be so that it can be realistically produced (technical characteristic of the design - not necessarily the file/program yet). I am looking for something kind of full body, rounded shapes, if leafs kind of remind of a hearth even better, but not main. It really just should look: that's the one. I am attaching a pic of similar objects, just to give you a sense of the full body, roundness ...
