I got contacted to do some smoke explosions to be integrated over real footage for an AXE commercial.
for the finals, 5 different explosions will be needed and they have to reveal very fast. some will need physical interaction with the body of the actor and the surrounding space.
but first they wanted to see some different types of dust-explosions which could be related to “deodorant” to chose from and define the kind that will be applied for all instances.
this is what I presented for the 1st round:
(left row: raw explosions – right row: overlaid onto footage)

all explosions were created using Turbulence FD in combination with X-Particles inside Cinema 4D
