This spot was shot entirely on a Phantom camera. Some of the challenges we faced on set were capturing the bullet at a reasonable shutter speed and practical resolution, not blowing the apple to smithereens, coordinating Sonic for a convincing performance (it's really hard to see when inside the suit), and of course my favorite of all, the deadline.
To composite this I utilized multiple takes of the apple being struck and exploding as well as multiple takes of Sonic acquiring his favorite fruit. As it turns out, apple-grabbing accuracy is terribly challenging with enormous cartoon glove hands. Elements from the bullet plates were also integrated into the final comp. Josh Hayward designed the awesome intro graphics sequence.
