The credit commercial I helped previs at Proof, inc. now has a project page on my website here . I worked mainly on the flaming cherries jubilee shot in the restaurant. You can view it below:
With China and Russia yet to release, Furious 7 has opened to $384 million dollars worldwide on its first weekend, making it the third-highest international opening of all time. Thank you to all those involved in making it a success, including all the fans who kept it sold out all weekend! The movie was a massive undertaking and underwent many wild turns, and it is great to see it met with such a strong reception.
Here is a picture of only some of the team back in 2013, when many of us began transitioning off of it:
Not all of the people who worked on it were given screen credit (as is often the case with previs), but here is as complete a list of Proof previs/postvis artists that I know of:

WHAT IS VISUALIZATION?
Visualization is a process that creates an early version of a project quickly and relatively inexpensively, usually through computer animation. It is common in the entertainment and technology fields, on projects like films, television shows, commercials, VR experiences, and theme park rides.
"Previs" artists create a film's digital blueprint early in preproduction by 3D-animating sequences in the computer before shooting begins, normally around the time of casting. Frequent iterations allow for story ideas to be explored, and alternate The detail provided by this blueprint is crucial for the film crew to determine how to best film the story.
