Shocktop “The End of the World”

AGENCY: 72 + Sunny

DIRECTOR: Matt Aselton

What could be more fun than blowing up things?  Doing it with Matt Aselton and 72 + Sunny in Buenos Aires.  At least that’s what VFX Supervisor Andy McKenna said after returning from the three day shoot in BA. Matt was intent on focusing on the performance given the dry comedic spokesperson for the campaign.  So having Andy on set with him was a tremendous asset.  Combining multiple live action plates, FX elements, matte paintings and CG aliens quickly grew to an inordinate amount of work. Production designers laid the ground work in BA with incredibly detailed art direction for the foreground elements.  But making BA feel like Armageddon was no easy task.
