Here's another BLIND project under the direction of Tom Koh. Ancestry.com wanted vintage imagery to come alive and help tell the stories of some civil war soldiers. This employed a mix of 3D and 2D techniques. We created "multi-plane" imagery by cutting out the images and adding or filling in details whilst moving a 3D camera. My graphics are peppered throughout the piece, as well as others. Easy to point out are the segments where flying piece of paper flies into camera and we continue to travel towards a name or signature. The writing suddenly comes to life and leads us further "into" the document. Tools used: Maya, After Effects and Photoshop.
This was the 2nd project I ever worked on when I first went to BLIND. I ended up doing the character/bike/camera animation for the first 3rd of the spot (about 10 seconds), from the very first shot to the Slow Motion shot of the dude that falls off his bike. This was a very fun project and one of Blind's biggest and most ambitious.
2012 - BLIND Studios project. Holiday spot for Dunkin' Donuts Coffee. I animated mostly in After Effects with 3D coffee bags animated in Maya. Coffee beans were simulated in Real Flow by Mike Tavarez. I comped whole spot in After Effects.
