Super cool project we worked on at Techno Image and Meindbender. A dream coming true. I'm really happy and I would like to thank Ale Prado (Creative Director of Africa) for the amazing opportunity.

I had the opportunity to work in many aspects of this spot.
From direction to Production supervision and photography direction.
I worked on in the main characters (incredibly designed by my partner Tiago Hoisel), Mike Sgoto and Paolo Pizza (also the Little Rats), being responsible for Modeling, Blend Shapes, texturing and displacement maps. I also worked in the main base mesh which was used for all male characters in the spot.

From the texturing point of view, this project was a nice experience, as the characters are Sweaty and dirty. Something not that usual in commercial projects.

During the process I went to Sweden and i've spent 2 months at meindbender working on the shading and lighting.
I worked basically in all characters shading, being guided by Michael Bengtsson (Maxwell Master).

Lots of shot lighting, props modeling/texturing/shading to full sequences shading and lighting like the Commentators and Gillette Particles.
Comps, comps and more comps too. :)

Don't forget to check the Credits below the video.
Cheers
