Hey Folks,

Just finished a short ad for an ad company called er... Advanatage Ads, NY -- they're the dudes that provide the ads running on those plasma screens at supermarket checkout lines. Any way, I did everything from soup to nuts including the v.o. blahbitty blah:






EDIT: just noticed there are a couple of sound issues i gotta iron out.

That's one tasty piece of work!

Speaking as an intermittent anymator working with very basic equipment, I'd love to know what you used to produce the non-MS animations and, well, everything else that went into it- if you're happy to divulge such trade secrets, naturally...

Ta!

Lovely stuff as usual Mr Z!

It's inspiring to see how you've charged off and taken MS straight into the heart of the commercial world without hanging around for it to be "ready for the big league".

You are indeed the Berzerker Viking of the Moviestorm world. wink.gif

Thanks, Stormies!


@ Prima -- tongue.gif i shall wear my new title with great pride.

@ Poulet -- i used photoshop for the grocery bag -- blue-screened it and did a simple overlay of the company's logo over it; i took some clip art of a grocery cart and just duplicated it and gave the carts motion in Sony Vegas -- very simple actually; really, all of the non-MS animation was done in Vegas using the "Track Motion" button -- which is a godsend; for the t.v. "scan phasing" effect i just used the "scan phasing" effect provided by Vegas in the TV simulator filter; i will tell u i had about 40 tracks of video when all was said and done.

if u have a specific question lemme know smile.gif
