This commercial featuring the photoreal CG polar bear is truly an impressive mix of 3d and reality, as the majestic creature is depicted swimming gracefully underwater. To add to the beauty of the shots, we cut between stunning footage of a female actor diving in a tank.
As the lead rigger and animator on this project, I worked closely with the team at Spellwork Pictures to ensure that every detail of the polar bear’s movements underwater was realistic and visually stunning. From the way its fur moves in the current to the way it breathes air bubbles, every element was carefully crafted to create a truly immersive and engaging experience for viewers.
I am very proud to have been a part of this project, and I am thrilled to see the final product come to life on screen. The combination of photoreal CG animation, stunning footage of a real actress diving, and expert editing and compositing truly make this commercial a work of art.
