I know these aren’t “animations” in the traditional sense, but seeing as how there’s no “Finished Work: Compositing/Effects” forum, this forum seemed the most appropriate. Also, If this post looks familiar, it’s because I posted this a little while ago in the Compositing and Editing forum. I was just hoping to reach more people by posting in this forum, and hopefully get some more feedback on the pieces.
Anyway, I just finished work on 4 effects pieces created for Nike’s launch of the Air Force 25.
[view pieces here](http://marshallbex.com/work/airforce25.html)
The spots were done through the Brand Design Media department at Nike’s world headquarters in Beaverton, OR. Myself and 2 other artists did the brunt of the effects work for these pieces (roughly 80 effects shots), and our art director also helped out with compositing as well. We completed the work in roughly 2 months.
The pieces feature NBA players Carlos Boozer, Amare Stoudemire, Al Harrington, Jermaine O’Neal, Emeka Okafor, and Nate Robinson. The players were filmed on a small green screen stage; we tracked the shots then created and composited in all the backgrounds. Be sure to check out the “breakdown” on the linked page to get a taste of where we started with the original footage, and how we got to the finished product.
Everyone that worked on these pieces was great and did a wonderful job. Don’t forget to check out the full list of credits on the linked page.
As always, comments and critiques are more than welcome! Thanks all! Russell Hirtzel
