Winner's Giftonomics Breakdown

In this commercial for the clothing chain "Winners", I helped with the lighting aspect of the CG environment, as well as creating custom lighting rigs and scripts. My tasks included:
  • Light the background environment and some foreground elements
  • Build a custom light rig that emulated snow and winter and rendered in Mental Ray
  • Created Maya shaders for the snow, metals, gift boxes and others
  • Composited shots together for final output using Nuke
  • Wrote custom scripts for shot automation
