What can I say, we love watches. Sekani Solomon and I were apart of conceptualizing and designing for FOX Sports Super Bowl XLVIII 2014 show open. Our final phase included creating content for the screens in the digital time square. With a very small time frame, we created the Cleatus watch.

In this presentation, Jason Diaz and Sekani Solomon discuss how students at Savannah College of Art and Design helped FOX Sports develop concepts for the opening title sequence of Super Bowl XLVIII. The students developed several pitches, involving style frames and motion tests created in Cinema 4D. Sekani explains aspects of the preproduction process, while Jason demonstrates how motion capture was applied to Cletus using the Retarget Tag and Motion Clips.
Sekani also demonstrates several powerful aspects of the Cinema 4D workflow in other projects completed at SCAD. In Seasons, Sekani developed a flexible rig to animate leaves using deformers, User Data and Xpresso. In a Coca-Cola spec commercial, Sekani used the Inheritance Effector to easily copy animation to multiple clones.

Sempiternal is a short film reflecting on society's programed fait for ourselves. As the human race advances its easy to lose ourselves, adding a type of layer and hiding what makes us human. We follow the path of what we believe is our purpose in life although pursuing it for "society" benefit instead for the benefit the human race. We accept the path we walk even though conscious of the corruption our progress causes.
Some frames depicting Facebooks lovely temptations.
