A very complex motion control shoot with up to 20 different passes on some shots. All composited together in after effects using 3D camera tracking data from maya (thanks mr moco). The footage was all shot on green and then keyed out and layered up to create the final animation. I was VFX supervisor on set providing live green screen key on my laptop and advising the director on what objects to shoot on each pass using stills on my ipad. 4 idents in total.
Description from the drum website

The idents have been directed by Tom Shrapnel, working alongside creative team Paul Nichols and Dave Eyre, with the concept of illustrating Brother products as being an enabler for different business to succeed.
Motion control was used, working alongside visual effects supervisor Adam Webster at Edit 19 to shoot multiple passes of each set, which were then composited together.
