Since this was the first attempt at the "capture it all in one take" concept with tightly choreographed hand movements, a lot of r&d had to go down. There was a lot of initial brainstorming and motion tests to see what worked best and felt most natural.
Motion Theory's Mark Kudsi and I worked in close tandem on this project and enjoyed meeting Shaun at the shoot as he tore up the hand choreography just like he does a halfpipe. One of my favorite projects during my time at Motion Theory hands down. And you gotta love the Motion Theory people (including me) hanging out on his MySpace page.
