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.
