MTV Summer

6 December, 2013

pictureDRIFT has recently created the on-air ident to launch the mtv summer 2014 campaign. The ident was shot at Watsons Bay baths by Kevin Scott and features Le Tanned guys and girls in brightly coloured swim wear, jumping, swimming, floating and basking in the sun as they multiply to the beat to fill the scene. This was a great concept and a really fun project to be involved with. It also provided a great opportunity to collaborate with music composer Justin Cetinich to create the mtv sound of summer. check it out here in the projects section

QBE Insurance tvc's

11 January, 2013

Two epic new tvc's created for QBE insurance air today. Our treatment involved creating a continuous fluid and free moving camera, which navigates through epic, expansive three dimensional scenes "frozen" at the point of action.

This project provided our first experience with using 3d camera mapping in Cinema 4D and projection man. Each scene was built from a mix of stock and commissioned photography which was camera projected onto 3d geometry, creating vast three dimensional spaces frozen in time for the camera to navigate.
