MANDRAGE | Silhouettes

Music clip for band MANDRAGE and their song SILUETY (Silhouettes). Complex realization of environment and 3D motifs. In collaboration with VFX ARTIST Jan Sladecko, DIRECTOR Tomas Kasal and EXECUTIVE PRODUCER Dita Knotova.


WORKING ROLE / WHAT I DID :

  • storyboard and transcription
  • concept design of environments
  • photo locations : Tatry (Slovakia),  Kačina (Czech Republic- Kutná Hora)
  • 3D generalist (modeling, texturing, sculptring, ligting, rendering)
  • 3D animator (book and environment athmosphere / smokes)
I was offered this opportunity in the time, when Jan Sladecko, skilled compositor and motion artist, worked in London. The rest of the team was settled in Prague, where it was planned to film live actions. So, during approximately one month I had an interesting chance to work on a clip full of VFX and CGI plus to do distance work. At the beginning of a project I worked on a pre-production phase - storyboarding, making simple designs and designs of scenes. Then I worked on a realization of fullCG 3D scenes and animated mattepaintings. We little got into troubles, when we lost part of a filmed material by accident, which was transported for compositing to London. But this problem was solved immediately by our executive producer, who managed new filming and (post)production was able to continue. Technological complexity and quality of making animations, landscapes and VFX was limited by time. We were sorry we couln´t do everything we imagined, anyway it was quite big amount of work in limited time and with limited resources. In the last phase compositor Martin Smejkal was involved in this project. Thanks to him, eveything was finished. It was a nice collaboration with director Tomas Kasal and executive producer Dita Knotova.
