SIGGRAPH Video Review:




    Vizzavi “Tennis”




Company / Institution / Agency:

  • Passion Pictures


    Computer graphics director Pierre Coffin’s campaign for communications equipment company Vizzavi features various animals in amusing situations. Passion Pictures teamed up with Parisian animation company McGuff Ligne, where Pierre and the team created the creatures using Symbor, composited with Trukor and rendered with MGLR: all McGuff Ligne in-house developed software programs. In Tennis, some chicks watching two roosters play tennis are accidentally used as tennis balls. When their friends find out, they use their Vizzavi mobile phones to spread the word and share their amusement.
