In order to create a dynamic and energetic Myoplex campaign and coordinating schedules with 3 different top tier athletes we ended up shooting in NYC. Oh and it was during a heatwave on a stage with 2 MaxiBrute 9’s and a Briese, making for LOADS o’ natural sweat!

We couldn’t get wardrobe to perfectly match the Myoplex brand purple, and the client was still negotiating colors for the talent with their individual managers. So we shot in a neutral grey and in post rotoscoped everything so we could color uniforms whatever was finally approved.
In order to achieve the bullet time look we shot at 90 FPS and then used software to animate and create pixel movement. Hand animation filled in the gaps and cover whatever glitches or errors came from the software solution.
