Nike – The Next Wave – BTS with Gimbalninja

Gimbalninja is a cameraman who pulls off the same extreme stunts as the people he’s filming. This means he runs around doing parkour off structures and holding a camera mounted onto a gimbal rig all while he’s chasing down the other stuntpeople for the perfect shot.

This behind-the-scenes footage of a Nike spot shows just how crazy it can get.

The second video is the full final commercial featuring the shots captured by Gimbalninja.

The 2016 ILM Art Department Challenge Winners Announcement

On May 4th 2016, ILM and ArtStation.com announced the first ILM Art Department Challenge to find the next generation of artists capable of working in the Star Wars universe.

3,888 artists responded the the call, and on May 18th the challenge began with The Moment—imagining key new moments from the Star Wars Episode IV-VI movies.

Only 330 artists were invited to the next phase of the challenge, The Ride, which asked artists to design new Star Wars vehicles.

Then it was down to only 224 artists who qualified for The Job Challenge. A concept art boot camp of 6 mini challenges that tested each artist’s ability to produce work quickly, to receive last minute Director’s changes, and to experience what it is like to work at ILM on a Star Wars project.

After three weeks of back to back challenges, 16 Art Directors from ILM judged the results to narrow the field down to eight finalists. We’re very happy to present the finalists and winners with commentary from ILM Creative Director David “Nak” Nakabayashi and ILM Art Department Senior Manager Jennifer Coronado.

Congratulations to all of the winners, and the Survivors who completed the ILM Art Department Challenge.

Visit ilmartchallenge.artstation.com for the Challenge results, and a selection of ILM Favorites, and the Survivors.
