Well, since there have been several other really cool threads about Nike commericals, I though to add our project into the mix. The spots just won a Gold Clio last week to be added to the Gold Lion they also won last year a Cannes.

There are 4 spots, 3 done for Europe and 1 for Asia. They were filmed all handheld with a dude in a green suit (for eye lines) that had to be patched out. 3d Stickman was all animated and rendered in Maya, as was most of the balls/fresbies.

Its too bad people state side never got to see them, so here you go....

Jackdeth are the servers a bit slow>? It takes 15 minutes to download one commercial and i am on dsl. other sites dl fast.


I am glad you guys used big quicktime movies though , much nicer to watch than the small ones.

Hmmmm, I'll take a look. We only went with the bigger ones once we found a good compression that made them load almost as fast as the smaller ones.

Time to kick the admin in the butt... ;)

**EDIT**

Those files are 24 megs. I'm going have them make them a bit smaller...

hey jackdeath, were you there for the shoot?

It'll have been so cool to meet ronaldinho!
He is a master of street soccer!

If you've seen the new nike ad with portugal vs brazil, he pulls off an amazing move at the end.
