Shilo's artists recently directed and produced an HD spot completed entirely in CG for the creative team from Seoul, South Korea-based ad agency Cheil Communications and their client Hankook Tires.
Shilo Creative Director Jose Gomez said, "Cheil Communications came to us with the idea of conveying that Hankook Tires allow you to out-maneuver and out-gun your competition. Over the course of about six weeks, we created the spot. We designed it to appear like a slice from a Hollywood action flick -- and to me, the finished spot epitomizes the classic struggle between good and evil."

Tools used in developing this project include Autodesk Maya for 3D, Cube for managing renders, Mental Ray for rendering, Adobe Photoshop for texturing, Adobe After Effects for compositing, and Final Cut Pro for editing.
