Check out this teaser trailer for Redeem: The Beginning. A probono film project with vfx from the students in Eksjö at Campus I12 and post production by Cloudberry Post. They also received help from Zentropa and final sound mix from SOUND WORKS (http://soundworkscollection.
Another interesting fact is (for us who are martial arts fans) that the main actress trained martial arts for 8 months and all fighting scenes are full contact martial arts.
Enjoy and looking forward to the full thing.

In this case it is in a very good and impressive way. Check out this epic breakdown from Moscow based main road for their feature film work with “Stalingrad”

PRODUCTION YEAR:2012 / 2013
This movie was special because it was filmed entirely in a greenscreen studio. All backgrounds and sets were created digitally, and only the things that the actors interacted with directly were physically present in the studio. Even some things that the actors do interact with were done as digital props and set pieces. Even cars were painted green and replaced with cg versions. The pre-production on this film was long and detailed. Storm Studios was responsible for planning and leading the digital work. The cg was done by the Swedish company Mad Crew, and compositing was done by storm Studios.
All shots were blocked out using the 3d set in advance, and the camera placement and movement was transferred to a motion control camera in the studio. Before each take, a floorplan of the current digital set was projected onto the floor and marked with tape and stand-in green walls, stairs etc so that the actors could navigate the invisible world. The director and dop could see a rough rendition of the set comped live with the actors. This image was also shown on a large monitor visible from the studio so that actors could get a feel for the world they were in.
This was the largest undertaking we have had since we did the animated feature film Free Jimmy, and we are proud to have been part of Scandinavia’s first feature made in this way.
Check out this massive interview with Niklas Jacobson, Vfx supervisor and Co-founder – ILP @ behind the screenz at the AREA- Autodesk.
He talks about ILP’s work on Kon-tiki, their short “The other side” and volumetric renderer Tempest.
If you read carefully you’ll find me as well talking about our work on Kon-tiki.
If that wasn’t enough there is a in depth tutorial/walk through on how ILP created on of the shark shots for Kon-tiki.
