For B&Q’s latest commercial we brought Fred, an eccentric, colour loving zebra, to life. In many of the shots we replaced the whole zebra mask with a 3D talking version, where as in others we patched in eyes, mouth and ears to allow subtle movements.
I was tasked with the grooming, lookDev and lighting and rendering of the zebra across the entire commercial.
One part of a series of eight spots following on from Sky Q’s fluid viewing campaign. I was the Lead 3D artist and heavily responsible for the choreography and ensuring continuity from the previous campaigns.
For this spot we were required to create a fully CG bird: “Hugo”.
I was mainly responsible for the groom of the bird crafting the density, flow and lengths of each feather. This was particularly tricky as we tried to stay true to that of an actual great tit, who have long feathers on their small bodies.
A fully CG spot for the new Audi A6 Avant saw us create a hummingbird designed to mimic the look and feel of the car.
I was mainly responsible for the shots where the hummingbird finds itself amongst a sea of foxgloves made entirely out of traffic cones, for all stages from modeling through to rendering (minus animation).
This was the first Lynx Angels ad The Mill worked on. Since working on this spot I’ve worked on many aspects of the campagian from iAd’s and Kelly Brook interactive facebook videos, to German Advent calendars.
I’ve worked on almost every part of the ads from texturing, tracking, lighting & rendering through to compositing.
“My Angel Girlfriend” is the follow up commerical to “Lynx – Fallen Angel”.
As per the previous ads I was responsible for lighting and rendering, but I also worked on tools to streamline the set up of shots allowing us to turn round shots a lot faster. This meant we could focus on other elements such as the wings interacting with objects and adding fur to the wings.
