Microsoft - XBOX "Snowflake" TV Commercial

This 15 second commercial spot for XBox was created at Superfad Seattle. Working with their 3D team as the Lead Compositor, I composited the 3D of the "hero" snowflake, the atmospheric elements, and generated the particle systems. All the pieces came together to create this short animation that includes characters from XBox games Halo and Fable. The final icing on the cake was a little voice over cameo from hip hop artist Ludacris.
