TVC: Shoot Supervision
I regularly perform VFX Supervisor duties on set, and Mizone is just one example of the supervising I have done for commercials and longform productions that involve 3D and a lot of 3D-related data. This complex 3D and live action effects job was shot by Nick Robertson for Clemenger BBDO Sydney, demonstrating the effectiveness of the re-hydrating properties of Mizone by showing a tennis player drying out and shattering to clay and dust as the game proceeds. While most shoots that I attend in a VFX supervisor capacity are design-based with some 3D and some liveaction (for example, greenscreen shoots), this was a very 3D-intensive job. HDRI using chrome and grey balls, texture photography, camera/lens and light data and continuity, and reference of talent, equipment, and environment were all required, without interfering with the workflow of the director or DOP. Additionally, a body and head scan was done of the actor so that an accurate 3D model could be made to allow the transition from live action to 3D clay man.
