A Story About Cherries

Concept

A few different projects led me to think about creating a playful ad for a food product. It was the height of summer, and I have always loved a bowl of fresh cherries on a July day.

Developing the theme further, I chose to specify Washington State cherries and use a cherry flower, leaves and cherries specific to that region.

Challenges

This piece was exceptionally challenging due to the transitions from once scene to the next. Incorporating the multitude of flowers and leaves along with creating the cherry trails in the snow required me to create separate files and composite them in Nuke due to the high computational requirements of the scenes.

I modeled the majority of the objects used in the scene, from the sculpted flowers to the interior of the diner.
