Like watching a pop-up book unfold in a modern office, Passion Pictures creates a world in which technology updates itself. As a man walks into his office building, everything he passes, from the buildings in the distance to his very own desk, modernizes and becomes more ergonomic as HP promotes its adaptive computer solutions.

Propel "Movement"

The Mill's 2-D and CG teams collaborated to show 3-D bubbles dropping live-action athletes into their specialized sports in this spot for Gatorade's flavored water. Augmenting footage to make the athletes bounce upon hitting the ground, the team animated additional 3-D droplets to represent splash and fly outward. Especially challenging was a shot in which a surfer hits the waves, as water bounces on water.

Nabisco "Chunky Monkey"

The dancing cookies and monkeys from London-based Loose Moose combine CGI and stop-frame puppetry in this latest spot for Nabisco's Chips Ahoy! brand. Filming the puppets in front of a green screen and creating CGI elements off-site in Maya, the moving camera shots also required a motion control rig to standardize the two passes of animation and create convincing and emotive 3-D characters.
