I don’t recall a whole heck of a lot about this spot, except having 3-4 days to conform and finish it, so it could air in time for the Oscars. I also recall there being a snafu with the watch geometry supplied by Samsung, which created a few degrees of stress.
As per the norm for these Samsung spots, I handled screen comps, general shot clean-up, and the CG end card, which used to be twice as long and far more graceful in an earlier rendition. For some reason, it got cut down in the final. Also, there was endless discussion to the layout of all these devices and how much they should each be silhouetted.
