Fun Stuff: QuickTime Player Required
Sometimes, I get to help other folks with their projects, or do other cool things. I'll try to post updates for these things, as I get time...
This was a fun project done after hours at Digital Domain, over a few late evenings. This was my first introduction to helping on the live action side of things....

There was a rumor that the "Coors Train" was being retired by their Ad Agency.

The idea of have a Jet Delivering Refreshing Beer struck us-- and this was the resulting spoof. Then we found out THEY ALREADY HAD A COUPLE! Oh well.
This gag spot is all about Weapons of Mass Refreshment! Witness the glorious beer delivery system (BDS) that looks a lot like something else, at first glance... Oh, and I got to build the "KegBomb" and animate it:
Many thanks to Charles, John, Chris & Terry for their assistance in putting this together while we were bored to death at work
(which is rare). Cheers!
