Featured Work

Ubisoft Shape Up
Commercial
For the release of their new fitness game SHAPE-UP, Ubisoft contacted Picturemill directly to produce a series of spots featuring celebrity Adam Pally from "Happy Endings" and "The Mindy Project." Working closely with Ubisoft, Picturemill handled the entire production from live action to editing to VFX and final mix for the series of HD spots.
Dracula Untold
Prologue, Main, and End Titles
To introduce the myth of Vlad the Impaler before he became Dracula, Universal asked Picturemill to conceptualize a narrative prologue for the film. Working in close collaboration with the director, writers and producers, Picturemill developed a series of "frozen moments" that the audience would travel through as Vlad's son tells the tragic story of his father. An elaborate motion control green screen shoot was done with a large cast of actors, period props and dramatic scenery to create the complex tableaus.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Opening

In our second involvement with the Apes Franchise at 20th Century Fox, Picturemill was asked to create a narrative sequence to explain the spread of the virus from the first film and its effects on the world, bridging the gap between the two installments.

Rather than a traditional editorial "news montage" sequence, Picturemill continued the design language created for the ending of RISE, to projection map news footage onto the globe in a unique display. Picturemill also had a major part in writing the narrative voiceover that drives the sequence. Picturemill worked very close with 20th Century Fox to source and manipulate the stock footage to serve the purpose of the story, before completing the sequence in stereoscopic 3D.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Main Title and End Title Sequences
Picturemill was approached by the filmmakers to design a fun and upbeat ending to the family film, as well as create an animation for the extremely long title. We created a fast and quirky open that lets the audience "read along" with the title as it comes on screen in bright and kinetic animation. Extending the birthday party sequence into the ending, Picturemill edited and animated a snappy end credit sequence that captures the fun of the party and the joy of a family celebrating together.
Jimmy Kimmel Austin
Show Open
In 2012, Picturemill re-conceived, designed, directed and animated the opening for Jimmy Kimmel Live. For SXSW 2014 Jimmy Kimmel was having a special one week Austin showcase. We were tasked to create a one-off Austin "special edition" of the opening, featuring the excitement and landmarks of Austin, Texas. Picturemill traveled to Texas for a 4-day and night shoot, gathering timelapse and on-location live action lifestyle footage. Picturemill then edited, added VFX, and created a customizable toolkit for on-air use by the in-house Jimmy Kimmel production team.
