Antenne 1

Oh my, this one goes back a long time.

I worked on this commercial in 1999, and it was a first on many levels: 2K resolution, a production that combined 3D, morphing, 2D compositing as well as a motion control camera. This was at a time when 512MB of Ram were considered massive (at least by me 😉 ).

Hey, I got to be the on-set supervisor as well, which was a huge experience but also quite tiring with two 14 hour days of shooting.

As far as I’m concerned that’s my first “proper” VFX project.

Favourite anecdote: When we screened the final edit to the customer I fell asleep every time I’d hit play on the editing suite. And this is a 40s piece! Too many non-existing nights, but well worth it.

So here we go, this was the result of six weeks of coding, compositing and cursing. I hope you enjoy it.
