The Salmon Dance - CG Video for the Chemical Brothers

Six Weeks to Complete Work in Maya On Some 320 Hand-Animated Fish

What follows is a sort of hip-hop Billy the Bass meets Busby Berkeley meets Finding Nemo number, as assorted seahorses, lion fish, yellow tangs, neon tetras and butterfly fish disport themselves around the tank, both individually and in aquatic chorus lines. As the dance comes to an end we cut to a pair of model divers in the corner of the tank, who bear a more than passing resemblance to a certain pair of Brothers ...

VFX Supervisor and Lead Inferno Artist for the project was Ben Cronin, veteran of many a Dom & Nic project, including Believe. "After some initial discussions," he recalls, "Florent de La Taille, one of our Animators came up with some preliminary fish sketches, from which Dom & Nic could select the direction they wanted to go. The pre-viz gave us a chance to block out some of the big chorus sequences, though not as many as we’d hoped, time being against us." A two-day shoot off Brick Lane saw the necessary plates captured, with challenges successfully overcome including cloudy tank water and a malfunctioning periscope camera.

After a little over two weeks for rigging and so forth, the Commercials 3D team were able to complete work in Maya on some 320 hand-animated fish in just six further weeks. "One thing that really helped along the way," enthuses Lighting TD Simon French, "Was a brilliant dynamic script developed by Junior TD Henry van der Beek for animating the fins and other features. It was a massive time-saver in the animation and brought an extra level of realism to the renders."
