Deep Sky collaborated with New Amsterdam Film Company and MG on their latest spot titled Monkeying Around. We utilized our in-house CGI chimpanzee model on this rad and ambitious 30-second international spot.
While we've have had several years experience animating and compositing digital animals (particularly chimps), this spot had a load of welcome challenges. From moving cameras, moving objects, interactions with talents, an 8 mm lens, CGI tunnel, and of course 3 digital animals and props in most scenes.
