This masterpiece was created for Djarum Super at Strange & Wonderful under the direction of Will Hyde. "Particles" is jam packed with motion capture performances, energy beams and simulations all founded in thoughtful design. I worked in 3D where I focused on animation and cinematography.
Djarum Super - Particles
Working from a rough agency vision, Jake Wegesin created these epic style frames to hone in on the explosive energy that embodies Djarum
Behind the Scenes
Pulling from our style frames and the agency's initial feedback, I explored methods in this motion test. This gave life to our frames and united the world in which these characters exist.
This pre-vis was created to time out the proposed performances prior to the motion capture shoot. It enabled us to build a world around the locked cinematography before the shoot even took place.
