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
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.
