Behind the scenes
One of Fin’s greatest challenges – creating photoreal heads of famous Chinese Athletes in their gold medal winning routines. A challenge compounded by the fact that there was no decent reference material of the athletes at the time of competition!
The heads of the athletes today were scanned and modelled in 3D, and then youthened to their competition ages – in some cases 27 years younger.
The CG heads were then tracked onto the bodies of young athletes filmed performing the routines on greenscreen.
Fin also created 12 Olympic Stadiums with crowds to replace the greenscreen studio from the shoot.
