Remember that Audi A6 commercial with the hummingbird flying about?
We were involved with early development and pitch work whilst working with Asif Mian of 1st Ave machine a couple years ago.
We created a number of still images and a nice little motion test with a Audi inspired, metal hummingbird design. Here are some stills from the motion/look development test. Tim Woods handled rigging and animation, whilst Mike Merron and myself did modelling, lighting, shading and comp.
It was amazing how similar the final commercial was in comparison to our pitch work. I still think our hummingbird design was much cooler too.....
