We would like to thank DLVBBDO and Section80 for choosing our VFX Studio for the launch of the new 2017 Yamaha TMAX web campaign. Our Motion Graphic department realized the graphic animations of the ledwall studio shots and our FX team created a photorealistic CG astronaut and integrated 3D elements on footage.
For the astronaut shots we started from a previz and then we animated a full cg model which rises in a deep space environment filled with billowing smoke and particles to give a sense of depth to the sequence.
The statue shot was crafted starting from a plate and an HDRi map taken on set. We added the cg statue, balancing the integration of the cg element and epicness of the shot through light and shadows. Volumetric lights and dust were composited to give more realism to the shot. A similar treatment was applied for a shot of the web.
