The gag for these Xfinity spots is the continuous and seamless “one-take” shot. Of course, each is comprised of many shots, not all continuous, nor seamless, with all types of nudging and fudging to get the transitional moments to align. Consequently, some spots flow more smoothly than others, each relying on their own visual techniques to tell the story – time-lapse, wipes, screens, morphs, etc.

The conforms were a bit tricky, getting all these elements to sync correctly, requiring a lot of counter-animation, repo’s and timewarp/speedramps, with the accompanying cleanup. Plus, an assortment of screen comps, and in some instances, rebuilding of background plates to align foreground elements.

These three spots come from a larger campaign, amounting to six in total. I chose these three, because I was the 2D lead for each. I contributed to the others, but only in a support capacity.
