Nike - 'CR7 - Chapter 1 - Savage Beauty'

Rankin shoots a stunning new spot for Nike as they introduce the Mercurial Superfly CR7 ‘Savage Beauty’, inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo’s volcanic homeland of Madeira. The superfly spot was shot in Madrid in only a few hours with Cristiano Ronaldo. I provided on set supervision on this shoot and completed the VFX work at Rushes. Volcano stock footage was blended over silhouetted shots of Ronaldo. Other top layer smoke, lightning, hot ash and spark elements were also added to the composites. The end boot volcano comp is a combination of a CG smoke plume and shot smoke elements graded and composited together in Flame. The ad won an award for ‘Best VFX’ at Berlin Fashion Film Festival and also picked up the ‘Best Editing’ award for Rankin’s Gary Coogan.
