This spot from Alt.vfx advertises the dangers of smoking and features some great vfx.

Chris, our wonderful lead, was responsible for all the wolf head replacement animation. I handled all the pig face replacement animation and the majority of pig digi doubles. (You could say I hogged those shots).

The fx artists and compositors did an amazing job at replacing the town set with straw and integrating all the digital pigs in the back. Yes, a lot of those pigs walking around are CG.

This was a fun project to learn more about pigs, like the fact that they don’t sweat!

One of my favorite parts of this job was finding this reference for snout movements. It’s not only useful but it’s also adorable.

I’m sure the ad will win Alt some well-deserved recognition. Currently it is being featured on Ads of the World as well as The Real Cost website.
