Yamaha 'Biggest Ever Sale'
This was a fun retail TVC that I made In after Effects with Yamaha's existing advertising material, stock footage, a great 3D "sale planet" made by Ali B and a little bit of green screen footage I shot of Actor Michael Rodrigues in some biking gear.
The reference for this was "Independence Day" Perhaps the toughest part of this was the was the tight turn around of five days. I just happened to be shooting another project in a green screen studio so I took the opportunity to sneak in the few shot I needed to get of Mike during the lunch break. Then it was back to Radium to put it all together. Matt had found a great selection of stock for the background plate, as well as a picture of a "rat bike" to pose as the broken down bike.
I then spent two 20 hour days compositing and putting it all together, but to be honest it was so much fun the time just flew by. We where then left with a day to finish the sound. I had gathered a whole bunch of sound fx for a sci fi project I had just finished, and this stuff was perfect for this spot. I put together a sound edit using the biggest hollywood sounds of the lot, then took it over to Audio One for a mix and to record the VO. Paul Davies stepped in to do the VO, and he delivered the perfect Orwellian God voice!
