Why not just use CGI?
CGI has enabled artists to create stunning visuals, there is no question. However, It’s not without its downsides…
CGI-assisted animation has the ability to create scenes that were just too ambitious, difficult or time-consuming to animate with certain other techniques. But there are also some major disadvantages associated with CGI-assisted animations that you should think about before using this technique for your brand.

Can you explain the process for one of your shoots with food?
There’s no set process because each job varies hugely with its specific requirements. But as a general rule, once we’ve got the script locked in, we normally do one or two test days where we are stress-testing the look, recipe, styling and any particular ‘trick shots.’ These particular shots are then tested, tested and then tested again. You want to be going into the shoot knowing exactly how to create that perfect wave, tumble, explosion, etc.
