ArsenalFX, a leading visual effects, motion graphics and design studio specializing in global commercial media and entertainment services, has just completed work on a new Samsung spot through client McKinney of North Carolina.
ArsenalFX provided Flame cleanup and compositing for a new :30 Samsung spot, entitled ®Jewels.® In the spot, we see a stunning montage of new Samsung phones ® silver, black and gold ® as they swirl against a background of sparkling, jewel-like light reflections. The phones are seen from a variety of angles as they gently revolve thru prism-like glitter.
Ashley Hydrick, ArsenalFX Executive Producer, said, ®This spot was shot practically with light reflections in camera using prisms and jewel tones. The trick with this project for us was to do cleanup and compositing around the light flares, replacing them to still look and feel realistic. Also the end tag (which looks like CG) was actually stitched together in Flame using previous shots of the phones resized and composited together in one shot.®
