Last year I was brought on this project by Renaud Lavency to handle the compositing of the entire video, except for the introduction shot.
I laid out the PSD into z-space, moved the camera, animated the phone and tons of objects inside the scenes, brought in the characters that the cel animators were sending over. It was certainly the biggest project I had been on so far, with fun teammates doing an amazing job.
