Mcdonald's Smoothie Commercial

I recently finished animating on one of the new Mcdonald's smoothie commercials for Buck studios. It was a combination of stop-motion and CG utilizing a motion control rig so that the transitions between the two would appear seamless when composited together. To view the entire commercial go here: Mcdonald's Commercial. In the meantime, if you enjoy watching two dudes handling fruit in tight quarters then you'll love the production photos below.

The other stop-motion animator who was on the shoot is a super-cool guy named Chris Rodgers. Check out his website here: milkmanmelvin.com
