The hair groom for the bunny costume is going well....no, im not talking about anything exciting or sexually tantalising....a squirrel will be dressed up as a bunny for some random reason. Other than the nightmare of fur upon fur collisions - its going alright.

I worked up a reasonable ice shader/model for 3 secs of air time on the Nike Lunar project. Alot of the 3D details created for visual fx are only glimpsed for a few seconds or even frames in the end, but that detail still needs to be there to sell the illusion/effect. Here are some development stills i found on my desktop.

Three weeks of post, 46 shots and a couple all nighters - our first spot for Nike is complete and successfully delivered on schedule. Nike Lunar is being launched by Footlocker in Europe and we delivered 3 versions with alternate 3D language cards including French and Italian. It appears this commercial wont be broadcast in the UK for the time being for some reason. A few shots towards the end are completely CGI shots. Following a laughably bad grade done by a top VFX house in Soho (and i mean really bad) - the spot will be be retracted and graded by ourselves in house. Quite how Baselight operators get away with charging so much is still a mystery of the post industry to me....
