Island Fever Productions Animates Gallo Gold MedalsCG simulation of coins and ribbons falling in slow motion
"Using a dynamic motion and cloth simulation along with some hand animation, we were able to achieve the perfect slow motion fall and landing of the three coins and ribbons, something that would have been very difficult to achieve with live action photography," says Michael Necci, Animation Director for Island Fever.
"Since we were simulating over-cranked, slow motion photography, the lighting had to be absolutely photo real," says Nick Ilyin, Effects Supervisor for Island Fever. Ilyin used Island Fever's custom lighting and rendering tools to achieve the result.
Island Fever Productions is a full service computer graphics production facility located in Santa Monica, CA specializing in character animation and visual effects for films and commercials.
