Here is Making off, and result of hard work, a small Upp team.
H.Malir : This was the job for United States army, US national guard… The director Mikael Salomon wanted to show some dangerous situations such as flooded cities, forests on fire, which can not be shot real. Floods, helicopters (in some shots), cars, trees, landscapes, fire and forests were created digitally in UPP. Commercials were shot at military base Camp Robert and Los Alamitos – California with some unique equipment such as huge gimbal – strong enough to move real Blackhawk helicopter in all axis.
P.Nemec: It was lots of fun, but more importantly, It was honour and pleasure to collaborate on such a great project. With perfect team of people, in UPP house. 😉
