Original SAQ tv storyboard

Here's the original board. It's the same angles, the same action, just a different drawing style.

SAQ storyboard

Agency: Sid Lee
Production: Les Enfants
Director: Ben Steiger Levine

Here is the final storyboard for the SAQ's TV commercial. We originally created a dark, '50s, film noir aesthetics for the storyboard, but the client preferred a more natural approach for the comical effect. I will post the original storyboard later.

Frito-Lay's tv commercial Motionboard and Backgdrops

Here's another tv commercial that Ben directed. I was first asked to create a motionboard (animatic) for previzualisation and pitching the concept.

Agency : Nolin BBDO
Production company: Les enfants
Director: Ben Steiger-Levine
Art Director: David Pelletier
Dir. Photography: Christophe Collette

Here's the Motionboard.

After, I was asked to create the 5 backdrops that would be skewed as if projected onto the surface. The huge photo-touchups were then printed on self adhesive 12x14 panels. I worked closely with David, the DA, to deliver theses images that needed to be glued in real-life on a cube on the set. He managed to integrate live elements to enhance the effect.

The first one, the office, is a full 3D image, that we produced with the help of Sebastien Nadeau at Spica.
First, the sketches...
Then the final image (the red lines represent where it fits on the actual set)

The three others are photo touchups and enhancements.

The last one, the kitchen, is a full 3D image, again achieved with the help of Sebastien Nadeau. Thanks Seb!

Here is the final tv commercial, in french. (It basically says that the new package format is convenient for any situations!)

"SPARK" Mood board for the Sprite Ad Campaign with Drake

This is the mood board I did for the Sprite commercial. The vision of the director was to create the effect using an animatronic, rather than the usual CG fx.

Agency: Bartle Bogle Hegarty, New York

Production: A White Label Product
Director: Ben Steiger Levine
