I was asked by ClemengerBBDO and director MIki Magasiva (Curious Film) to take two intrepid mountaineers (not at all romantically involved), and place them on a sheer rock-face high up one of the world’s tallest mountains, and allow them to cool their heels for a few days. Sherpaaaaaa!

As VFX Supervisor/Flame artist for this commercial, I thought the easiest way to do this was with a blue screen and some set extensions to plates that were actually only shot only 8 feet off the ground with a crane on a soundstage, then add in some digital snow and FX plates, a bit of fog, some particle animation, pack cleanups, and the obligatory epic mountain range.
