Saw this commercial the other day, and it had me and my friends jumping for the 'Rewind' button on the DVR. We watched it about six times before giving up trying to figure out how they stitched this thing together.



Reminded me of the stuff Zemekis and crew did in Contact (way back in 1997!!) putting practical photography and CG through some new paces.

If anyone has further info on this commercial, please pass it on. And apologies if this is the wrong forum. Might be more appropriate in VFX.

Cheers.

Wow that was insane, looks like The Matrix stop motion stuff, probably some kind of separate shot with multiple cameras on a rig and then all stitched up in the edit.
