DIRECTV SPOT BRINGS 'BACK' CHRISTOPHER LLOYD CHARACTER

WATCH THE VIDEO

The commercial cuts between actual footage from the film and newly-shot footage of the actor. Brickyard VFX was challenged with matching the quality of the new material with imagery from the more than 20-year-old production. The studio used Autodesk Flame 2007 to add grain and adjust color and sharpness to best match the elements. Brickyard VFX also composited smoke remnants and lighting effects. Patrick Poulatian was VFX super/lead VFX artist for Brickyard. George Fitz also served as a VFX artist.

The Syndicate provided telecine services on the spot, with Beau Leon acting as colorist. Chrome's Adam Parker and Tommy Harden cut the commercial. Eleven engineer Jeff Payne handled audio post.
