Quiet Man For Planters Nuts

files/pictures/picture-35.jpgQuiet Man has created the "ground breaking" visual effects for Planters Nuts newest spot. In the spot, a group of golfers say to each other "gophers don't like nuts," making a rodent do a double take and uproot the putting green by tunneling a likeness of the Planters mascot "Mr. Peanut." "The challenge on the Planters spot came toward the end of the project," said Phalana Dias, Quiet Man visual effects artist. "The gopher's double take wasn't boarded, but it was a good idea, so it was up to me to animate the gopher's head using Inferno. I did some extra animation just to give the gopher more personality. Beyond that, there was a good deal of rig removal, and a lot of compositing into the green background."
