The good folks over at CMD Agency challenged us with populating every seat in CenturyLink Field for Microsoft's latest Surface spot. We accepted the challenge and dove in head-first! John O'Connell, the shoot director and creative director for CMD, asked Cooper Johnson to be his VFX supervisor for the project. Cardboard Castle handled all of the visual effects. John said "Make it rain!" And boy did we!
Cardboard Castle was responsible for populating every seat in CenturyLink Field, the home of the Seahawks, as well as extra players, coaches, and staff on the sidelines. We also performed:
-Removal of stadium banners
-Integration of jumbotron graphics and the Seahawks endzone logo
-Convincing rain, fog, and atmospherics
