"Silverlight" is a 90-second video that promotes Microsoft's new cross platform browser platform with a series of vignettes that are shown in a live action/animation sequence.
    A small Panasonic HVX900 camera was used in the live action shoot to generate close up skateboard shots. A combination of 2D and 3D elements were used in the animated segments. The video relied on a collaboration between Phoenix Editorial & Design, which oversaw the live action shoot, and Ember, the concept design studio in charge of the animation.  Phoenix did green screening and rotoscoping and used Maya and Adobe After Effects to prepare footage that was sent to Ember, which  created the CG environments where the characters live.
