Audi: “Force of Nature: Summer”

ROLE: Senior Flame Artist / VFX Compositor
VENDOR: The Mission
AGENCY: Venables Bell & Partners
DIRECTOR: Douglas Avery

This was the last project I did at the Mission. It’s one of two spots to commemorate the change in seasons, in this case the start of summer. The Audi’s presence literally alters the atmosphere as it drives through the landscape.

I comp’d a number of sky replacements, depending on the before/after context, handled a fair bit of car beauty, and worked on the beach transitions, primarily with the sunbathers and the umbrellas. There was also some environment clean-up and replacements, like the ocean and sand. I explored some concepts for the wave-like transition element that travels through the spot, some of which ended up in the final version.
