CISCO “Storm”

AGENCY: Goodby, Silverstein & Partners

DIRECTOR: Christopher Riggert

“Create a CG Storm at sea” — not really the kind of assignment you get every day in advertising. But in our second Cisco campaign with GSP, Biscuit’s Christopher Riggert, and RPS editor Stewart Reeves, the task at hand was to build a storm that would culminate in epic shots complete with rollicking waves, driving rain and blustery winds. Although CG water can be notoriously tricky, the a52 team, led by VFX Supervisor Jesse Monsour and CG Supervisor Andrew Romatz, succeed in creating a photo real “weather day” that intensifies throughout the spot and really wows at the end.
