CG Lead - Houdini FX -  Nuke Compositing - Production R&D


:30 broadcast spot made at Filmworker's Club in Chicago for Samuel L. Jackson and Capital One, directed by Spike Lee

This was a really interesting spot to work on, as it posed quite a few challenges, such as the obvious problems of shooting an infinity mirror while hiding camera equipment, having the reflections act independently of the "real" Samuel L. Jackson, fading everything out to white instead of black like light would typically do, among others

In the end the solution was a full spectrum combination of clever on-set shooting, procedural houdini world building, and an extensive 3D setup in Nuke that was part comp part 3D hybrid solution
