This is one of two spots produced by Hatch Studios Ltd. for Reach. Appropriately named “Mouth Moves”, it features a character being able to brush his teeth by sliding his mouth around his face.
Some interesting notes about this project were that we created the characters in a very stylized caricature form yet rendered them in a method which makes them appear very ‘tangible’. The oversized heads in proportion to the bodies further emphasize this as does the realistic lighting setup. In addition, ensuring that the mouth moving around the face didn’t come off as looking creepy was a challenge in itself.
This spot was created with Zbrush 3.1, 3dsmax 9.0, and rendered with VRay 1.5 RC3.
