Mixin Pixls Navigates Acura Ads
Mixin Pixls has completed the transitions and visual effects for a new Acura spot entitled "Navigation." In the spot, animated dots guide a path through various terrains demonstrating the Acura's new navigation system. Mixin Pixls' CG animators Harri Paakkonen assisted by Brian Obee, used Maya Live to track natural artifacts in the landscape (rocks, trees, soil and so on) to create the needed effect. Mixin Pixls used Henry to create the look of the spots being painted on the ground. The spot was produced for advertising agency Rubin Postaer & Associates. The live-action portion was done by Tool of North America. Mixin Pixls' crew consisted of executive producer Dan Filice, CG director Paakkonen, Henry online Mark Dennison and assistant digital artist Obee.
