Ensure: Nutrition in Charge

This piece is a national commercial for an ad campaign produced for Ensure by Bent Image Lab. I completed most of the compositing and editing on this spot with AfterEffects and Final Cut Pro. It was a fun job with interesting challenges such as changing the color of the rubber band on the bunch of asparagus to meet the Creative Director’s needs.

Pert Plus Arabic Version

A commercial produced by Bent Image Lab for Leo Burnett. Again challenging but ultimately rewarding work. I did the most of the compositing and editing on this piece. We had many issues with the thickness of the hair being able to read as hair and not just some squiggly flat lines. Also the depth of field was created almost entirely in After Effects, it brought our 8 core mac pros to their knees. Seems the faster you can make a machine the more likely we push the capabilities of the technology.
