I was part of a very diverse team of Artists, Illustrators and Animators creating this fun action packed open for Kevin Smith's Comic Book Men show. For my part I was involved with 3D Animation & Compositing for various elements through out the open (Kevin Smith Warp in Effect & Background, Walter city composite, Mike Composite, Brian Composite and Volcano animation, Exploding Earth Ending).
Comic Book Men is a series airing on the AMC network. It is set at Kevin Smith's comic book shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, in Red Bank, New Jersey. The first season ran for six one-hour episodes, the premiere of which aired on February 12, 2012, following the return of The Walking Dead's second season. On May 9, AMC announced that Comic Book Men was renewed for a second season of 16 half-hour episodes.
Men’s clothing company Van Heusen partnered with Funny or Die, a comedy themed video web site for another installment in the Van Heusen Institute of Style campaign. According to Van Heusen, the Institute of Style is designed to help American men step up their style.
This next installment features NFL legends Steve Young and Jerry Rice, as well as Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. In a previous installment Matthew Stafford was added to the Van Heusen Institute of Style campaign as the latest student to go from style trainee to graduate. Now in this latest installment, Stafford passes on the lessons he learned from Young and Rice to an everyday schlub who is attempting to get a small business loan and is in dire need of a wardrobe overhaul.
For my part, I was enlisted to do rotoscoping, clean up of plates, addition of multiple signage through out the spot. Examples like the addition of the word “BANK” to all the exterior bank shots, logo signage on the van,and all In van computer screens.
