Omega Seamaster “Planet Ocean”

Sep 14th, 2011 // In: Featured, Portfolio, VFX Supervisor // By: Comments Off on Omega Seamaster “Planet Ocean”

Buzz Aldrin narrates a continuous camera move from outer space down into the ocean in this commercial for the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean watch. I served as Visual Effects Supervisor at Digital Domain with Pierre Michel directing for Mothership.

My crew included Juan Gomez (CG Supervisor), Dennis Blakey (Houdini/Storm FX), Jason Selfe (Nuke), Sven Dreesbach (Nuke), Patrick Perez (previz), John Cooper (Houdini FX), Zach Mandt (matte painter), Jeff Heusser (Flame) and Hnedel Maximore (lighting and animation). I pitched in with some Houdini setups to create the schooling fish and flock of birds, and I rendered the ocean surface in Mantra using a setup created by Mr. Cooper. John also helped us organize the cloud library from Stealth into a format usable by commercials.
