Animated Teaser for Cheetos Pop-up Restaurant in LA
This was the handy work of Kyle Wood, one of our talented motion graphics artists. It was created for an online promotion of the Cheetos pop-up restaurant in Los Angeles, CA.

Next it was onto removing the grill at the bottom and bringing in burning wood bellow. The burning wood was animated with a similar technique we will describe about the fire creation.
This was rendered out and brought onto After Effects. It was used to displace colored flame shapes that undulated with vector masks to create the fire effect seen in the end result. To add a bit of finishing touch, the fire was given a large outer glow to help light up the environment. One fire flash was added as well to give more realism. The fire itself was a bit harsh at first, so a slight motion blur was added and there it is.
