    Default New Pontiac Commercials

    Hey guys, check out these two Pontiac commercials I just finished working on over the last few weeks. They have been getting a lot internet hype and started airing on TV this weekend. The YouTube videos look like crap and the second one is very dark, but keep an eye out for these on TV especially during basketball games.

    Fun Stuff!

    Yeah, the Sway 3D guys are definitely top-notch. They give us compositors some good renders to work with. Lets see those wheels shine, John.

    Nice work. Although I'm a former Pontiac driver I never had much love for the brand outside of the Trans Am (and that was a peculiar one). But these commercials really gussy up that car. Can't say a lot of folks would look twice without marketing spice like that. Kudos!

    Aaron, some good reviews of this commercial on another forum I'm on:

    'Yeah, I saw that on tv this weekend. Definately loved it.'

    'LOVE that commercial.'

    'I just saw this commercial on TV tonite for the first time and loved it. Once I heard the opening music, I knew what they were going to do.

    Now where's my 8-bit NES????'

    'This is seriously one of the best car commercials I have ever seen. So creative and brings back good memories. Actually I think Spy Hunter is one of my early influences towards my obsession with cars.'

    Hey Alex, thanks for posting the good words. What forum did they come from, I'd like to show the guys at work.

    John, the agency was Leo Burnett.


    As a side note, after working on this commercial at SWAY Studio, they offered me a staff position as a Visual Effects Supervisor. So now I won't only be working on these commercials, I'll be in charge of making them happen. A nice bump up for me.

    I gotta say, the idea was genius and it was executed perfectly. One of these days I will have to come over there and work with you guys.
