A recent technical
challenge was set to our CG department…Can we demonstrate the feasibility of
showcasing a frozen ice lolly product in a variety of images? Traditional
photography methods would have meant placing the frozen lolly in direct
lighting for extended periods leaving a frustratingly narrow window for
capturing the shot before the product had to be replaced.
The idea of using
Pix CGI meant our unparalleled photorealism would allow the client to show the
construction and quality of the product whilst keeping the image looking
refreshing and appetising. The ability to deconstruct and re construct
the product could simply not be done without the use of CGI.
After a delicious study of the behaviour of the ice
lolly…the surface, reflection, lighting reaction we recreate the materials in
layers, addressing each physical aspect of the reference based on direct
observation. We digitally sculpted the finished result with the lighting and
art direction integral to the feel of a shot, allowing us to create a striking
editorial image. The beauty of CGI is allowing us push and develop aesthetics
for a strong campaign.
