The Mill has done the VFX and Post-Production work for the comical new spot for Mentos UP2U Gum from The Martin Agency and Directed by Steve Miller.
A young man enjoys having a choice in gum, and finally he makes a choice but then things go wrong and a Tiger appears.
According to Lead Flame Artist Markus Lundqvist, the challenge was in making the tiger talk: “In addition to joining the tiger with the live-action plates, we spent a lot of time on the mouth animation. Since there is no real-life reference for a talking tiger, we did a lot of testing and tried several different versions until we captured just the right look.”
