Purorganic Commercial Storyboards

Here's something I worked on some time ago. As far as I know, it's a local commercial for a cosmetics company named "Purorganic", starring Han Suk Kyu (한석규), apparently "one of the leading actors of Korean cinema" according to Wikipedia. Check it out:

It's unfortunate the VFX/compositing/editing work leave a lot to be desired, but that's probably due to lack of man-power, time, and budget for the project. Still, they managed to get it out, and it's been broadcasting for several months now, so that's cool.

My job in this was the storyboards. I got called to do a rush job for the commercial. Not pretty pictures, but under the time contraints, they got the point across. I did storyboards for two concepts, but here are the storyboards for the one that made it to the final commercial:

And then I also got to help out on set as 2nd AC, among minor other things, which was a lot of fun. At one point, I was an extra (as a "grip" walking in the background), but sadly didn't make the final cut, haha. Well, maybe next time.
