00:00:00 Opel to Vauxhall versioning: Nuke Compositing removal of steering wheel on car-left and go-faster stripes on white car. Insertion of replacement CG Vauxhall grill, CG steering wheel on car-right, CG fog-lights (Red Car only), and 2D Hubcaps on Red-Car (using projection onto geometry in Nuke).
00:00:15 Doria to Naturaqua versioning – replacement of original bottles with 2D element in Nuke and insertion of original water in new bottle.
00:00:22 Nestea localisation: tracking in Mocha, insertion of new label (2D texture) and changing product colour to strict brand-guidelines.
00:00:23 and 00:00:29 Nestea Snowflake: Mulitpass compositing of CG fruit, bottle, liquid and snow. Creation of background plate with parallax. The project involved major client and agency revisions to the original brief and many of these, including the final approved liquid texture, were entirely created in comp as there was no budget for a new render. In addition I assisted with some texturing in 3D (Maya, Vray) and modelling the snow (using Maya particles). Furthermore it was imperative to make the comp simple to use for reversioning to multiple markets.
00:00:25 Toshiba Cinema, Free Willy: for this sequence of Cinema Ads I helped design the visuals based on puns provided by creatives, many concepts were tried before the final selection. For this shot I rigged, animated and rendered the whale using Maya and Mental ray and composited the final piece in After Effects.
00:00:33 Grabbers (Feature Film): Wire removal in Nuke, with tracking in Mocha. This was fairly gnarly as the safety-wire was tangled up with the shirt
00:00:38 Nestle Fitness, reversioning: Tracking in Mocha and compositing replacement pack in Nuke.
00:00:40 Toshiba Cinema, Million Dollar Baby. Having received the pun from creatives I designed the visual story in After Effects and animated in Maya.
00:00:44 Toshiba Cinema, Saving Private Ryan. Again I designed this shot based on the pun using 2 elements in After Effects and soft-body dynamics in Cinema 4D.
00:00:48 Fellowes Better Shredder Versioning: Tracking in Mocha and compositing replacement text using animated gridwarp and corner-pins. This was designed to be a simple comp for multiple versioning.
00:00:51 MasterCard Priceless London: Digital Out of Home. Animated this logo in After Effects, originally for a Harrrods Digital Out of Home, it has been used on multiple ads since.
00:00:53 Grabbers (Feature Film): Wire-removal using Nuke using Nuke Camera tracks and Mocha Corner Pins.
00:01:00 and 00:01:13 Kader Eyes: This low-budget music video involved about 150 shots of varying complexity which I worked on between other gigs. On the reel is a black-screen (actually grey) extraction of the girl onto a background created entirely in Nuke. The speaker shot with particles is created in After Effects with Particular, as is the girl turning into smoke.
00:01:06 Coca-Cola Artic: I created the animated texture for the can in Nuke using the original label and reference from real polar-bears. These were passed to 3D who provided multiple-passes and ID and I then composited the results in Nuke.
00:01:14 Compare the Market, Village: Removed original driver using provided camera track.
00:01:17 Baaria (Feature Film): Bluescreen extraction using additive and conventional keys to retain all detail. All compositing in Shake.
00:01:21 Baaria (Feature Film): Mountain insertion. All compositing in Shake.
00:01:30 Ford Vertrek: Multipass compositing on 3D Concrete blocks in into scene. All compositing completed in Shake.
00:01:34 Grabbers (Feature Film): Removal of about 20 LED markers from container and ground. Removal of wire and crane rig-used to send talent flying off at the end of the sequence.
