Athletes Ad Infinitum: Under Armour “Rule Yourself”

The Mill VFX team and Oscar-winning director/DP Wally Pfister transform what might have been yet another slick showcase for elite athletes (Misty Copeland, Stephen Curry and Jordan Spieth) into a complex and memorable spot for Under Armour thru Droga5, mobilizing the studio’s skills with Massive software to create subtly different multiples of the talent on a breathtaking scale.

The inspired music choice of Philip Glass’ “Knee Play 1″ doesn’t hurt either.
