Doclasse / Method Studios / 2018
A spot to show off DoClasse`s magical thermo coat which is as warm as down without the puff.
Director Jon Noorlander and the team at Method brought initial design character style frames to life by using motion capture, marvelous designer, Houdini, Cinema 4D, and Octane rendering. The CG characters were created by working with choreographer Tricia Miranda and dancers Jessica Castro and Nataly Santiago at Silver Spoon motion capture studio. The live-action model was captured on stage in Tokyo. The team of talented Method FX artists, animators, riggers, compositors, and designers at Method brought all of the pieces together with The Elements Music team to create the spots.
I was responsible for R&D and making production assets for the fur and feather system. Multiple types of feathers had to be mixed to achieve the look needed, and because the process of growing feathers and morphing back to the inflated suit had to be very art-directable it required some complex Houdini magic too.
