We are proud to be part of bringing to life the launch campaign for WWE's popular SmackDown series on NBC Universal's SyFy. Directed by Jose Gomez, these spots combine live-action 35mm cinematography with original graphics and VFX artistry to create short, powerful vignettes that cinematically render the signature moves of WWE superstars Big Show, Kane, Kofi Kingston, Rey Mysterio, and The Undertaker. As it has within so many historic Shilo projects, Jose's passion for character development once again takes center stage in this campaign. "For me, it's all about working out the story and character development by delving into the emotional side and personifying the fascinating characters we shoot."
