While we don’t take credit for the creative on this one, we did have fun essentially knocking off the Dos Equis ads for TrillionMedia/GemsOne in a dupe of “The Most Fascinating Man Alive.” (If imitation is the truest form of flattery, even the brilliant ad agency that first dreamed up these spots should perhaps thank Chuck Norris.)
Just finished up this video for Dell and NVIDIA — to be used in a big way at this year’s Autodesk University conference. Might be some of the nicest footage we’ve ever shot with our fancy Red cameras — and definitely one of the best pieces we’ve done to date for Dell. Emotional, aspirational, with a story, which is a pleasant change from the usual technical, talking-head executive stuff.
Last year ZaneFX did some visual effects for Kyle Rankin’s post-apocalyptic Nuclear Family. The film is finally out as a downloadable series on SyFy.com. In addition to some digital pyro and some nuclear mushroom cloud animations (soon!), we also pulled off some low-budget/ super-fast-schedule matte paintings of the sci-fi/end-of-the-world variety. One of these involved the rather deep concept of The Wall.
Dell is one of the leaders in private cloud infrastructure for enterprise, thanks to platforms like their new vStart 1000. Scalable, flexible, and reliable, the vStart is also one cool-looking piece of high-end server gear.
“Cue the dramatic music.” Another quirky, funny animated spot featuring Dell’s charming stick figures.
ZaneFX was recently credited for visual effects in the Paramount Pictures release of Jeff, Who Lives at Home, directed by Jay and Mark Duplass. (On Bluray and DVD June 19th.)
Although only seven seconds long, the hero shot we were involved in was a critical third-act moment of the film, featuring one of Louisiana’s “endless bridges” to the horizon.
