Behind the scenes
In “Lifetime of Goodtimes” Fin had to manage two hero visual effects concepts.
The first being the “one continuous shot” effect that was achieved by using carefully placed set pieces and props to act as wipes between shots. This had to be meticulously planned out prior to the shoot using a 3D previs in order to ensure the individual segments would add up to create a full 45sec TVC.
The second was the “concertina” effect. We had to create the illusion that people were folding out from behind each other. This was accomplished by painting out talent on the master plate and then “revealing” them as they crossed behind other passengers.
