Kinder Bueno

This is a nice one. The commercial features usual cleanups, but there are two consumption shots… well turns out this consumption shots were shot with two chocolate bars. Due to legal stuff the company can only show one chocolate bar, so I had to “remove” the second one, reconstructing hair, part of the jaw, clothes (which was being blown by the wind), some background and a little here and there. Challenging but very cool, done in Nuke, while all the other cleanups in Smoke.

I will include a breakdown and a few screenshots as soon as I find some time to write it properly, meanwhile, enjoy the vid.

Just like Nescafé, shot in Lebanon by Clandestino films and directed by the cool Andre Chammas.

Awarded!

3 of the commercials I’ve comped for the Japanese brand Vitaene C commissioned by Ogilvy Dubai won 3 Gold Lynx Awards. The spots feature Sumo wrestlers performing unsual stuff. The spots which won are Sumo Fragrance of power, a mock of a perfume commercial. Sumo Occasions, featuring different occasions when to drink Vitaene in different times of the day and outfits. And Sumo Breakdance, which it’s name makes it quite obvious.

I couldn’t get a hold of the onlines to upload to my Vimeo account, but I could find one of them in the Lynx 12 account. and here it is.

Enjoy!
