Donna Summer: The Ultimate Collection

Earlier in 2016 we were engaged to create an end to end commercial for client SJW films, promoting a brand new CD collection for Donna Summer's greatest hits.

We supplied previsualisation of the commercial, allowing the client to chop and change as they saw fit.  Once approved, neon beams that fly towards camera were modelled and rigged in 3D to recreate feeling of past CD sleeve artwork, then timed & animated at each track.  Light fog and stars were added to give more depth, along with rare archival footage of Donna overlaid.
