This Coca-Cola commercial was a pretty cool project Nexus Productions!
A full 3d animation with 67 uniqe characters, all of them hand animated,
and everything rendered in HD 1080p (which was a lot at the time).
The production time was about 2,5 month and we where around 20+ people involved in the process.
It won a Gold Lion in Cannes!
What I did
I was part in animating two of the shots near the end where all the guys starts dancing around in a pattern and the next when the mobsters and police cars comes crasching and end up dancing in the street.
I also helped out with rigging the characters which was pretty interesting because of the amount of characters that would be animated later on.
With a basic rigged model with a huge amount of blendshapes on we could match up that mesh and skin wrap the weights on to a new model, which would save us a day or two on each character when it comes to skinning.
The modellers also used that basic morph character to create all the different ones, with alot of extra tweaking of course but a lot of time was saved there as well.
