Fin Design + Effects



Behind the scenes

A runaway tent leads a not-so-outdoorsy couple on a merry chase through some of the beautiful countryside just south of Sydney in this spot directed by Fiona McGee at Goodoil for Innocean Worldwide.

Filling a real tent with a giant see-through helium balloon helped production get half of the shots in camera, with the other half requiring Fin’s FX crew to simulate this flapping monstrosity in CGI. Multi-layered cloth simulations in Houdini and plenty of lighting reference captured on location allowed Fin’s VFX crew to create a digital tent that could be seamlessly intercut with the real thing.
