Getting out of my dark studio for some Starbucks
Every now and again, I get to leave the cavernous darkness of the animation studio and venture into the sunlight to be part of a fun pixilation shoot. Dallas Sterling, the brilliant DP who I got a chance to work with on an XBox commercial, brought me onto this Starbucks SipFace spot as animation supervisor.
Over the course of three days, we shot dozens of setups from Venice Beach to Griffith Park. Frappuccinos were frozen with dry ice so they wouldn't spill out of their cups, but still every shot was a race against the frozen-coffee-melting-clock. A special thanks to all the very patient actors!
