I was the Lead 3D Modeler on this commercial in charge of scene assembly, game asset management, and supervising various artists. Mario and Nintendo was a huge part of my childhood growing up, so having the opportunity to work with such a legendary game studio was a very surreal, nostalgic, and humbling experience.
