Industrial Strength: Superfad Grips Talons into Nike Spot

The advantage of Nike Zoom Alpha Talon’s exceptional traction is showcased with heart pumping, clanging intensity in a new spot by Superfad. Nike’s desire to convey the robustness of the shoe to its professional football users inspired Superfad to design the spot using the visual metaphor of heavy machinery.superfad_nike_talon2_08.11

Matching specific shoe attributes with industrial mechanics, the shoe is transformed into a massive machine moving with exacting power under a night sky. The surrounding environment, an empty football stadium, places the shoe at center stage. The high-energy experience of intensive moving parts is supported by a driving music track by World Gang and Sound Design by Clatter & Din.

The spot was concepted with Cinema 4D and Vray, with animation executed using Maya and Mental ray. Final composite was done in AfterEffects.
