Nitto Tires - Ridge Grappler - is a 60-second broadcast campaign highlighting the key feature that makes up Nitto's top tire line. Merit/Andrew asked me to come in and help out with 3D modeling, lighting, texture, animation, and VFX, and the compositing and looked development; as well as designing and animating the information graphics. The 3D was done in Cinema 4D and beautifully composited collectively in Adobe After Effects by the talented artists at and myself.
