The russian’s are coming. That’s what my Captain used to say to us when we I did my military service (100 years ago).

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”

A few words about the project

PRODUCTION COMPANY:Svensk Filmindustri

DIRECTOR:Walter Söderlund,Pontus Klänge

VFX SUPERVISOR:Morten Moen,Fredrik Pihl


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.
