Late in the process it was decided the pack-shot of this new line of products would be done entirely in CG, which means we had to ensure our renders would have a smooth photo-real look to it.

V8 V-Fusion – Leaf

Animation
Shading
Lighting


For this 15 seconds animated piece, we had to rebuild a countryside landscape from various elements.


The initial plants were shot against green screen, the hero leaf was built in 3d and and animated to blend seamlessly with the live-action plants and also land on the live-action bottles.


The background was built from a matte painting projected on 3d geometry.


The grass environement at the end was also entirely rebuilt in 3d.

Samsung Jet



Creature Modelling
Character TD

A viral campaign for The Viral Factory for Samsung Jet phone, with a humoristic tone set as a to fake a corporate product launch.

I created the model from various pictures I took at the Whipsnade zoo near London.
I also created the rig as well as the animation pipeline.


Next the elephants were animated, bungee-jumping from a UFO over Picadilly Circus.
