It’s a big weekend for TV viewing, with one of the most highly anticipated broadcasts of the year hitting the air this Sunday. That’s right, it’s time for Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl. For this spot promoting the singular event, 2C Creative created a 3D stadium environment and built out a crowd of spectators from a handful of extras using Autodesk Maya, Maxon Cinema 4D and, for match-moving, Blackmagic Fusion. And, yes, of course the music is by Mötley Crüe. (The band pledged its fee to support animal rescue work.)
