HAWTHORNE | timeheals

Romantic USA drama-series from medical environment HAWTHORNE - TIME HEALS. Postproduction and VFX realized by studio UPP. Collaboration on a complicated VFX scene.


WORKING ROLE / WHAT I DID :

  • 3D VFX and animation of wish lantern
I shortly collaborated on a complicated VFX scene here. In the end of a pilot episode actress Jada Pinkett Smith launches a lampion of wishes. During the filming a real lampion was used, it was driven by a crane on a rope, but it "flies" in a different direction than a camera´s movement. My task was to create a 3D double of this real lampion andd then replace the real lampion by its double in a certain phase and animate it in the right direction. Moreover, 3D lampion should has flied behind the real tree, which was a tough job for compositors (it is not a good idea to mask individual leaves). It was a close collaboration with VFX supervisor David Vana. Scene compositing, fire adding and effects were work of my skilled colleagues and digital creators from UPP.
