We made this ad (and 3 more to be aired soon) at Windmill Lane Pictures in Dublin for an Irish gas company.

Done with Softimage, comped in Flame.

This is fantastic! Great integration between the 3D elements and the live video. How did you get the characters to interact with real objects (like when the couch depresses when a robot walks across it, or when the woman's pant leg moves when pulled)?

Glad you liked it.
The interactions were mostly made on the shoot with strings that were erased on the flame, and some details were added in post too.

How do you erase the wires? It's always something I've wondered. Is there a feature to do it in Flame?
