Nobody Keeps Caleb on the Sideline!
He's back! Geico's camel Caleb happily agreed to work with The
Mill again and Fox director Matthew Waddell for Fox
Sports pre-game show for the Super Bowl. His triumphant shout
of "guess what day it is" has a whole new meaning on game
The Mill's 3D & 2D teams got to work to help bring Caleb's
personality off the sidelines and hijinks ensue as he and Terry
Bradshaw exchange words over their amount of Super Bowl rings,
camel humps, and hair (or lack thereof)!
Things go slightly awry for Caleb when he investigates the matchup
of classic stadium snacks instead of the players…
The Mill's VFX supervisor and 2D lead Randy McEntee talks about
his third time working with Geico's camel 'Caleb' "We're happy to
see Caleb back! And this time he presented us with a few challenges
on the 2D side. We had to photograph Caleb on a blue screen before
we knew what the exact background would be. After an exhaustive
search for the perfect stadium background, it turns out there isn't
any footage on a football field that is framed for an 8 foot tall
camel. Who knew?
"We held off finishing until the Super Bowl teams were determined,
and then rushed to insert the Seahawks and Broncos logos into the
backgrounds. A lively and fun project with a madcap dash at the end
