Client: Asylum VFX, Santa Monica
[ PLAY VIDEO ]
We created these unprecedented morphing chocolate effects for Asylum VFX in Santa Monica, (www.asylumfx.com ) on this Frey Chocolate commercial using 3 of Fusion's proprietary technologies:
1-- a custom ribbon force field which kept the mid-air flows of chocolate flattened along a ribbon-like path to make it less snake like and more like the desired mid-air stream of chocolate.
2 -- Fusion's fluid morphing technologies to form the shapes.
3 -- Fusion's recently developed smorganic technology to prevent the cg fluid from breaking apart into webbing as cg fluids often do. This is particularly important as Asylum's client wanted the chocolate to look smooth and rich and creamy of course.
Fusion also developed the lighting and shaders for the chocolate and rendered.
Asylum VFX in Santa Monica art-directed, created the geometry, animated the geo in camera and did comp'ing and finishing.
