complete 3D model of the nightclub 222 Hyde in San Francisco, circa 2013. Photography, modeling, shading, lighting, animation, and rendering by Shannon Stevenson. Created with Maya, Photoshop, rendered with Mental Ray (approx. 1875 hours).
Affectionately known as the "Rave Cave", 222 Hyde had one of the best quality sound systems in one of the smallest spaces at the time. Off the beaten path of more trendy clubs, 222's loyal following enjoyed some of the best DJ talent, music, live comedy and vibes in the Bay Area and beyond. Boasting a storied past going back to the Fillmore/Tenderloin jazz era, 222 Hyde also served as a sort of VIP room for musicians such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Chet Baker (to name a few) performing right next door at the legendary Black Hawk jazz club.
