A breakdown of the visual effects behind two key shots in the film.
The most challenging aspect of this project was doing it alone, meaning I was responsible for the story, script, acting, cinematography, filming, editing, and color grading, as well as the visual effects work. However, it has given me valuable insight into the process for the entire pipeline, allowing me to better understand the craft of each related department and the challenges for the artists within them.
