Smirnoff Black / Matrioska Invaders

My inspiration for this spec film was to clash a popular russian symbol with Milan's famous locations.
I did a manga restyling to the classic matrioskas' look.
All the dolls and the bottle are in 3D CGI, composited over real footage.

I've personally took care about all the production phases.
From creativity to shooting, from 3D animation to editing and compositing.
