VFX Breakdown: Sweater

Last week I was working on a retail spot where we needed a product that wasn’t shot on-figure. But we did have a shot of a similar product. It just needed a little work. This is what I mean by “a little:”

I’m pretty pleased with the end result. It was a fun task to work on, though I hope I don’t have to do it too often…

The Muppets meet the Internet

Okay, so I have no idea how I missed these. So far, I’ve seen Statler & Waldorf, Sam the Eagle, Gonzo, Beaker, and the Sweedish Chef (featuring Beaker).

High-Five Hollywood


So, I don’t know if you’ve seen the High-Five! montage by my friends Jake, Bob and Jack. If you haven’t, go watch it, I’ll wait.

That video was enough to get the attention of Jake’s higher-ups at Funny-or-Die and they created the much anticipated sequel: High-Five Hollywood! Take a look, it’s fun times.

As a side note, I did the effects for the final shot of the Hollywood video.
