UEFA Champions League - Semi Final Draw Promo

For this project I was asked to create idents for each of the teams left in the UEFA Champions League tournament for a promotional film. The overall look for the idents had to tie in with the brand identity of the Champions League. To create these compositions I took photographs of each player and isolated them in Photoshop, taking out the background in the process. I then took each player and animated them in After Effects using puppet pins. I then rendered those out and placed them inside glass panels within my Cinema 4D scene. These glass panels were then animated using a plain effector and rendered with Cinema4D's physical renderer and then imported back into After Effects for the final composites.
