Call of Duty

I was approached not long ago about the possibility of working on "a cool live action project" which would involve some set extensions, smoke and other FX. I didn't know at the time it was going to be Call of Duty, nor that it would be as cool as it ended up being. I was beginning look development on a new game cinematic for "Transformers: Fall of Cybertron" and really wasn't expecting to get pulled off it. However, that is what happened. I was asked CG sup the latest Call of Duty commercial. It was a very fast project. Only 3 weeks from the day I started till delivery. The first week the live action hadn't even been filmed. My team put in some long hours and worked weekends, but in the end we worked on roughly 20 shots in one way or another creating everything from set extensions, helicopters, jets, missiles, mines, explosions and rocket launchers. Nothing was particularly difficult about this project with the exception of the time frame we had to do it in.

So here is the spot.

Not long after this was released Jay Leno did a spoof of it which was quite fun to see.

After this commercial was finished I did get to go back onto the Transformers cinematic which I'll post about in the near future.

Commercial looks awesome. Wish I could see some environment renders or a behind the scene look would be cool. Great job!

Both, this clip and the 'Transformers' one are really cool. I've started learning 3dsMax recently using your video tutorials and they have been really useful. Waiting for more news :)
