Mitsubishi recently tapped Brickyard for extensive CG work, most notably on the frogs, in “No Fairytale,” a new spot showcasing the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer. A majority of the frogs featured in the ad are completely CG, although for one close-up the Brickyard team carefully layered shots of real frogs to create the illusion of hundreds of frogs in the road. The hero frog in the spot was created using a combination of live action and CG which gave Brickyard artists the freedom to animate his speaking lines and manipulate facial movements to sell the realism of a talking frog prince.
