LOS ANGELES — X1 FX (310-979-4643) has completed work on Knights, Cyborg and Sea Raiders, a commercial campaign for NASCAR on Fox via Cliff Freeman & Partners, along with HSI Productions. The trio of commercials, directed by Joseph Kahn, feature NASCAR drivers Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson, all shot on greenscreen and later composited into different environments.
VFX supervisor Mark Larranaga and his team composited the drivers into their respective scenes. Larranaga enlisted the CG team of Barbed Wire FX to work on the flying cars in Cyborg as well as on the CG pirate ships and water featured in Sea Raiders. Artists used Maya and LightWave for CG. Compositing was completed in Discreet Flame.
