This is no ordinary football match. In a stadium of the future, two teams battle it out in front of a huge roaring crowd. But the players aren’t wearing hi-tech boots – they’re wearing hi-tech legs. This is ‘Until Then’, the new commercial for the Puma V1 08 Speedboot.
It was, says the Mill’s VFX supervisor Jordi Bares, ‘a fully fledged CG project’, demanding sophisticated digital choreography to create from scratch the city, the players, the arena and the crowds. The result was a believable vision of the future, made achievable through a combination of stunning VFX from The Mill, high-tech motion capture from Audiomotion and lightning quick ball play from some of the world's best football freestylers.
