Here are some of the best product shots I′ve done for Saturn at Sehsucht Hamburg.
During preproduction of the 2012 & 2013 campaign I was responsible for creating a flexible and powerful Softimage setup which was used as a base for more than 60 saturn commercials ever since and saved us a lot of time.

The setup enables other artists to load in the relevant saturn product, and finish the spots as fast as possible, including animation, lighting and render passes, with a minimum amount of tweaking nessesary.
As much as possible is automated with the help of ice kinemetics and rendering can be done either in mental ray or arnold.

For the 2014 campaign (Saturn Tech-Nick) we switched everything to Arnold Renderer. It was a big improvement in look and feel for the 3D products!
The 2014 campaign acts in a real environment and the products gets a more realistic look as before. Below you can see some stills from the new campaign.
