Gold: APGD Awards 2015 – Best Design in a TVC Commercial

Working through Ink Project, I was both VFX Supervisor and compositor for this TVC. Supervising a shoot starring Chris Hemsworth was definitely an unforgettable experience.

For Foxtel, in this spot Chris Hemsworth takes us on a journey through drama genres, whilst delivering his thoughts on Foxtel’s drama program offering.

Originally shot as two plates with greenscreens, shots were then stitched together and greenscreens replaced with a Game-of-Thones-style background, complete with dragons, a slain army, and warriors doing battle. The matte painting was split into layers and projected onto planes in Flame, with Flames attached to dragon renders using exports of positional data from Maya.

In the latter half of the commercial, smoke, flames, and flashing lights were added and enhanced, to create a much bigger effect than we could have safely achieved on set.
