A recent spot I had the opportunity to work on at Artistic Image to promote Radio Flyer’s venture into the realm of kids scooters. Ed Dye art directed the piece and Ken Soons directed the shoot. Daniel Wiggins, Lee Kordel and Jeff Ling handled the 3D animation. Randall Champagne and myself handled the compositing and post.I was primarily responsible for the shot where the helmets form on the three kids in a Tron-like fashion, the ramp build-up shot, jump call-out shot, and compositing the 3D for the hero shots of the scooter.From what I hear, this spot is getting a lot of airtime on Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel!
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the full length cut of this story featuring Magnus Walker. It did not disappoint in the slightest. The cinematography is gorgeous, the story is concise, and Magnus as a focal point is just downright interesting. I think it is pretty damn safe to say that I would get along with this dude. WELL. Bravo to all involved in producing this. I think it is outstanding.Read more about Magnus over at Driving Line.
