  • Industrial Light & Magic


    An aluminum superhero dedicates himself to wiping out thirst! “Pepsiman” is a highly-detailed human character, performing a wide range of athletic activities, from surfing to boxing. His “action-figure” antics push the boundaries of the CG model, while his “chrome” body reflects his constantly changing environment in each scene.
