CHARLIE COMPANIES shows how they created their new NFL Network ID’s in this video below.  Using Cinema 4D, they seemed to have camera mapped a flat image (after cutting it up in Photoshop) onto 3D geometry and added a bone system for some slight movement.  The key to this technique is to not travel to far on an angle one way or the other, or you will start to see the imperfections of a flat image being wrapped around geometry.  Very well done, love the breakdown!



So I posted the original version a little while ago, and now here is the behind the scenes for PSYOPS new “RETHINK BUTTS” ad.  It includes a breakdown of style frames, previz, animatics, and render passes.  Check it out below.

PSYOP and WIEDEN+KENNEDY creates animation for WORLD OF COCA COLA in ATL!

PSYOP “on behalf of” WEIDEN + KENNEDY creates 6 min. long animation for the COCA COLA WORLD in ATLANTA titled, HAPPYFICATION!  This is not a new animation, although I had the pleasure of visiting the COKE Museum recently and was incredibly and pleasantly surprised when I sat down to watch this before going on my “self guided tour”.  Not only was the animation gorgeous, but the unique and original character design, the hilarious story, the vast world and of course, then catchy songs and smooooth voice-overs.  I recommend both the video and museum, although try not to make the same mistake I did by sampling ALL 65 different sodas from across the world…

Check out this compilation of shows and movies that you may not have realized used green screen.  Nowadays in our industry, if done well you can save a ton on your budget by using green screen properly, like creating an entire film that takes place in Alaska…in Massachusetts.  Hope this gets you thinking.
