Brisk Eminem

I animated the sequence on the rooftop (photo above) and the walk-off at the end, with assistance from Dick Kaneshiro and Matt Manning. Amy Adamy and Misha Klein animated all of the "rotator" sequence.

Lipton Brisk Ozzy Normal

I animated the bit where Ozzy says, "Refer to your privates as naughty bits, believe commercials," the line "But why would you want to be normal?" and the product shot.

Here's a timelapse video of the shooting of the product shot. That's Matt Manning and Ellen Ridgeway helping set up the shot and me animating.

Animating the second half of the shot which begins with Ozzy in the bus, saying, "Refer to your private parts..." The set (designed by Fon Davis and crew) was on a turntable. photo by Dick Kaneshiro

Here's a view from above of the rig that was used to hold Ozzy up for the few frames where he had to be suspended in mid-air.

Here's a view of the rig from under the set.
