This job was a real challenge and all that Algebra that I studied came into good use.
The basketball court on the floor of the house is actually Pergo wood laminate flooring I had placed above a preexisting floor, which was then measured, marked, and painted. The technical issue was sizing the basketball 'key' so that it appears as full size as possible through the lens of the camera. The house could accommodate the actual 'key' size, but there was a wall that encroached and blocked the shot.
Once I figured in the type of lens being used and compensated for its curvature, the math had to be done to space everything accordingly. We had meetings about this for a week before I finally nailed it.
There are two commercials in this campaign and both of them feature a dog in the last shot. The dog actually belongs to the family that rented us the house to shoot in and the director took a liking to him after he plopped himself down in the middle of the set.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
