The Mill's VFX team created a massive amount of CG snow and ice roiling intensely around a victorian, larger than life snow globe for Wrigley 5 Gum's 'Snowglobe.'

The world slowly builds into a CG blizzard as Mill artists added details of dust and snow to the vegetation, a frozen tree explosion, and a whirlwind of CG flurries. To ensure a realistic "snow globe" effect, the team examined large snow globes to research how the miniature, fake snow encased worlds would actually appear through warped glass.
