At The Mill Angus Kneale used Atari 'Asteroids' game footage to choreograph the moves of the spaceship striking the asteroids and incorporated the drawing of the Hummer. For the final live-action scene of the speeding Hummer various telecine passes were needed to create the luminous evening sky, and a myriad stars were added in Flame.
Both 'Asteroids' and 'Big Race' end with a 3D earth pullout. Created the year before by The Mill 3D artist Aron Hjartarson for the launch of the Hummer H2, the earth pullout was modified specifically for the commercials. Night-time texture maps of city lights were painted in Photoshop and processed through Softimage for 'Asteroids'.
