Painstaking CGI

I was dead set on this cup of coffee firing steam from it's contents through out the shooting for this commercial, but just like everything else i do, all is rushed and doing take after take while in between heating this cup of joe just didn't work in the time frame alloted to shoot this thirty second spot. SO... Me still insisting to have that cup of coffee steaming to show the chilly evening night of the scene, I decided to do the unthinkable AND actually use CGI. All the keyframing, photoshopping, and BS, and this is what I get. Fake smoke that looks fake. I love it.
