XTEP : REACTIVE COIL

Animation spot for Xtep's new performance shoe technology, Reactive Coil. At Already Been Chewed we worked with an international client based out of China to bring this spot to life. Working as one of the in-house lead artists my role involved rigging and animating the running shoes and waves, camera moves / animation, some shoe build-on, styleframes, and some live footage / CG compositing.
