Visual Effects, 2D & CGI

Working with a range of 4k and 8k resolution plates, the VFX undertook consisted of crew and equipment clean-up and unwanted features, drawing focus to the intended action.

The Porsche driving shot required two action plates stabilising and comping together, allowing for the car departure to marry with the people left of frame.

After the 2D animated sequence, we transition to the real world, where ______ stands looking from her window of a high-rise building. Pickled built a 3D cityscape and tracked the city into the background behind the windows. The cityscape transitions from 2D, to our 3D backdrop.
