ADV – Mezzo “Leap” Visual Effects Breakdown

This is a visual effects breakdown I created for ‘LEAP’, one of the two Mezzo commercials directed by Joseph Kosinski. The live action was shot on 35mm against greenscreen, and composited into an all cg environment using Nuke. Visual effects were done at Sway Studio. Mezzo was nominated for a VES award: Best Compositing in a Commercial.
