Bolo Liverpool – 2011 El regalo de Santa
The 2011 Bolo Commercial, a 3 minutes full-HD and Full-CG film that Vetor Zero has produced for Liverpool, a department store in Mexico. This is the second film that the Sao Paulo-based production house delivered for the same client, the first one in 2010 and now this one with more characters, dozens of environments and a more complex script to accomplish in a 7 month time-frame period.
In this project, I was responsible for the CG Art Direction, Color Keys, Matte Paintings, Ocean and Sky effects and some compositing work.
Guilherme Rizzo was the CG supervisor, the amazing, Manuhell and the mastermind, Marcelo Souto did an incredible job in the pre-production period taking care of character designs, environment planning and storyboarding. Also, the very talented Dalton Muniz and Ricardo Riamonde joined the team, helping with dozens of matte paintings and texture work .
Most of the matte painting work, about 40 shots out of 60, on this project were done in a 2.5D approach, painting over basic 3D models and re-projecting the painting back onto the 3D scene in Maya.
Here, some of my color keys, a Paris matte painting and a shot breakdown
