Sunset manual

The last year has clearly observed the trend of creating movies by the most complex of the possible solutions - instead of using improvised CG-software and hardware creators around the world are looking for ways to make nice and on a large scale by means of "handcrafted" .Otkaz of computer technologies date back to the agency Fallon campaigns for Sony Bravia. Famous balls, jumping on the overlap neighborhood of San Francisco, you can call one of the first well-known spots created on a "Sunset manually." Very, very many people who are accustomed to the fact that all such spectacular things are done on computers for a long time could not believe it, and then long wondered what it really is hundreds of thousands of myachikov- "Jumping" and not CG.

In order to understand the nature of this trend, it is not necessary to dig deep. Firstly, we played enough, and secondly, it turns much as soul, and the result is attracting more attention. Those Fallon and Sony Bravia deliberately attracted the attention of the public as an advertising and spectator, the fact that all the videos of the campaign «Colour Like No Other» made "the truth", talking about the process of creating each roller on a specially designated site.

This complex project where not only the most complex shooting commercials, but also gave a detailed account of etoi, not only serves as a logical rationale for such a painstaking approach and show the audience the approach to the production of Sony TV Bravia. Thoughtfully, carefully, with great dedication.

This is one of the reasons why the creators manually roll the sun rather than with less labor, time and cost to do almost the same thing with the help of high technology.

Another reason - to create the necessary strong emotions that will inevitably arise in the viewer when viewing this video. It's like a film and digital photography, like vinyl and CDs. Rollers, made live, and commercials, computer-generated. And, both of excellent quality, but the first option is more real life, and therefore more emotion.

There are plenty of well-deserved and well-known commercials made to these principles, but we recall about them later. First, we offer you an illustration of the fact that this trend really is. Of all the spots that ignore or almost ignoring computer graphics and released in the past six months, Website chose the most interesting and most clearly reflects the importance of "living" commercials.

The brightest of them - «Samsung LED Sheep Art», made as a viral video for LCD TV Samsung. The video, which was released a month ago, scored 7 million views on YouTube. The controversy over the reality or feykovye not cease, Viral Factory, the agency guru of viral marketing, says that everything in this video is for real.

«This is where we live» - a video dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the publishing house 4'th Estate Publishers and removal technology stop-frame-animation.

German Agency Heimat, and PSYOP Stink Productions did for Audi Q5 video technology, which can be called "chelovekopikseli."

"The objective was to show the basis of synchronicity. We are looking for interesting ways to create a real image with hundreds of perfectly coordinated and synchronized people holding special sheets. In addition, we also need to go beyond the limits of design and technology. Roller should turn out epic and impressive, but at the same time plausible.

In accordance with the elements whose use has been stated the brief, we decided to start with a simple three-dimensional images of landscapes and Q5 therein. The evolution of video is that from the flat "chelovekopikselnyh" images, we turn to three-dimensional images, which are also created by people - acrobats, jumping to the sheets in his hands. And the faster turn over the leaf, the more realistic the image looks. Ultimately, we wanted to show people that create the image on the edge of the possible.

We have discovered many ways to create volume. We talked with our choreographer on how we fix the people in the air to create a pyramid of people and synchronous flip. This was important, because in fact everything has to be created by people. The audience had to understand that it is a show created for him on a huge theater stage; that such a result was achieved at the cost of serious effort.

The video promotes the idea of ​​synchronous operation of people over cars, making it impossible in the creation of forms, images, and finally Audi Q5 ».

Over time, the viewer begins to realize that it's not just LED screen with primitive pictures - hundreds and hundreds of cars Honda Insight Hybrid, flashing headlights at night. The video ends with the dawn and logo «Honda Eco».

Executive Creative Director John Norman: «The first time we went to the site to see whether it is possible to do all this with these machines. It was just amazing to see what has been done, studied and counted to create a real car light show. The distance to the camera, lens types, even the weight of the camera, all affect each other and everything else. It was a gorgeous inspirational process. "

But in the end, despite the fact that the team found out that the idea logistically feasible, the agency is to think about the harm that would be caused to the environment of such a large-scale shooting. Not that he would have been very large, but since the brand platform is, you have to follow it around. As a result, it was decided to combine the software for 3D modellingu Houdini, a small amount of the actual car Honda Insight and hundreds of lights from the Insight. Everything was interconnected, and custom-written software has created two separate half animations that have been linked to the post-production.
