Mercury part 2

The Nike Lunar commercial 'Ungrounded Obsession' was recently released.
Here it is on youtube.
It was a brief vfx shot that turns up at the 40 second mark - but looks slick cut in with the rest of the stylish, near monochrome visuals.
I created 300fps fluid droplet sims individually, utilising the great Viscous Drop plugin from WETWORK, and arranged them around the Lunar.
Nike supplied the actual shoe used in the shoot to us and I used Photofly to extract an accurate build of the shoe - projecting the RED cam plate back onto the geometry.
This enabled the droplets to reflect accurately and sit more realistically within the scene.
