I was fortunate to work for one of my favorite clothing brands, Uniqlo, along with the fantastic team at Buck New York. The production of this spot, describing the magic behind HEATTECH, was the result. I was tasked with generating multiple cloth sims throughout the spot, as well as the spinning particle sim midway through the commercial. In parallel with the cloth sims, the team in New York requested I incorporate the ability to swap out the cloth geometry as needed. To round out the production, we decided to wrap up a few Houdini nodes into HDA’s for use in Maya’s Houdini Engine.
