There is something lurking in the shadows of the night. Something stronger than us. A new creature. It’s the only thing awake at this hour and we will hear its sound. This is a simple story of someone going for a drive at night, all night, to catch the sunrise and beat his time. The Jaguar F-Type R is coming.

Grand Theft Auto: RISE is about the birth of an underground hero. He is not the hero that we are used to seeing. He is submerged in his own internal darkness. He is a protagonist. People will fall, things will break, he will be left standing alone in a tunnel with no light at the end.

This is a different take on the live action version of the world famous Grand Theft Auto IV video game.

AUDI RS5 evades a crash test collision with a falling cement block dropped from a huge crane. A full-CGI experiment of a single, continuous, hyper slow-motion fantasy moment. Now, let’s dodge some cement blocks.

We modeled the Audi RS5 from scratch. I wanted the car to have super high detail no matter how close the camera came. The final model of the car had around 1.6 million polygons. Full detail in the headlights, taillights and the interior.

Adidas “Conquer” is about isolating yourself from the rest of the world on a rainy night to overcome your most difficult opponent - yourself. This night will be colder than the other nights, and the rain will fall harder. This is about breaking the invisible limits set by our minds. Impossible is Nothing.

Here is a visual effects breakdown for some of the shots from the commercial. A lot of motion tracking and background replacements. Most of the rain was generated in CG. In the shot breakdown where the opponents turn into water, none of them actually ran next to each other in real life.

The M3 unleashing its magnificent screaming engine and shredding the 265mm tires.

The e93 M3 is one of my favorite machines of all time. It has a beautiful engine. I wanted this concept to show how fast this thing reaches 60mph. Since it does so in only 4.5 seconds, that is precisely the length of the commercial. It is literally the time it takes the vehicle to accelerate to 60mph.

Prologue

Hi, I am a Director & Interactive Director who graduated from the Art Center College of Design in 2011. I was born in Russia and immigrated to  the United States when I was 14. Initially pursuing a career of a surgeon, the qualities of perfectionism and attention to detail were embedded in me. I also like user interface design. For inquiries & bookings or just to say hello, please feel free to contact me.
