Lawrence and the Ruby
An exploration of two worlds colliding from vastly different universes — taking inspiration from one historical setting and combining it with one of fantasy. It originally started out as a kind of cinemagraph, almost a gif, but transformed into a bit more — Lawrence of Arabia meets Ruby Weapon. Concept | Design | Animation Sound Design by JM Cifonie

An R&D animation for morphing, sculpting, and deforming fabrics and cloths. Mostly procedural built. Rendered in Physical.
Under Armour : Highlight MC
The live-action spot for Under Armour's Highlight MC Cleat, featuring Leonard Fournette. Already Been Chewed was tasked with the production of the spot — designing CG and VFX shots — transitions from live-action to CG, color grading, 2D graphics, and the final edit. My role involved designing, animating, and compositing the CG transitions and camera moves, color-match / light match CG shots with footage, shoe rig and grass impact animations, some editing, and the tread-melt-triangle effect.
