[VISUAL FOUNDRY] goes above and beyond to help our clients achieve their creative vision. Each of the following projects presented a unique challenge for which Visual Foundry was pleased to help to find the solution.
"The simplest explanation is most likely the correct one". How did we accomplish this image? Was it a one-take shot of the talent [two birds] jumping off of a jetty in fading sunlight? Or, was it a CGI jetty with two birds jumping on a trampoline in the studio composited over a beautifully crafted background plate?
Well, that’s just our little secret...
Not really, this is how it all went down…
The background plate was a six image stitch to ensure that there was enough resolution for billboard output.
BACKGROUND PLATE EDITED
The background plate was edited to include some midground area of interest to the right and some more depth to the scene.
A new sky was added and the image was graded to the feel the client was looking for.
The CGI Jetty was built and aged based on supplied reference images and then combined with the scene adding reflections and shadows.
STUDIO SHOT TALENT
The talent was shot in the studio jumping from a mini trampoline with lighting that reflected the background plate.
On location there would be time for one shot considering the talent hair and garments would have to be dried.
