YU GI OH! SPOT RELIES HEAVILY ON EFFECTS

Voiceover states, "From the depths of defeat… grows a new, more powerful force" and Yu Gi Oh! trading game cards rise from the earth and into the boy's hands, transforming him into an animated winged warrior. 

Don Kleszy of Bluerock cut the spot, which relies heavily on effects, created by Lawrence Nimrichter and Andy Milkis of Spontaneous.

A 3D version of the boy was created, based on the live action and was then broken down to be recreated as an effect. Extensive set replacement and sky extensions were also employed to create the ominous, baron surroundings. The team used Softimage|XSI for 3D and handled compositing using Eyeon Fusion and Autodesk Inferno.

Green Dot Films produced the spot for agency Posnick Plus in New York City. Michael Marinelli at Buzz in New York handled the mix.
