Snapple - "Phil in a Bottle"

Description

Director: Dave Laden @ Hungry Man
Editor: Tessa Davis @ Cosmo Street
Mango Face/Arm Build: Legacy EFX
CG/VFX: The Mill
Color: Ricky Gausis @ MPC
Audio: Mark Meyuhas @ Lime

Approach:
We had Legacy build a harness with a dual purpose – limiting the actors' motion and holding the mango arms and hands for the actors to puppeteer themselves. Their faces were covered with layer of latex and makeup, which mimic’d the shape and colors of the mango. The Mill then came in and blended the live action with CG mango bodies, also replacing parts of the arms via 2D/3D as needed. And BAM – man sized mangoes.
