Very nice breakdown from Ghost in Copenhagen on their work on

Kvinden I Buret (aka “Keeper of lost Causes”)

a short selection of the visual effects we did for “Kvinden i Buret”. The most significant effect in the film is the “poetic” car crash where the interior was shot high-speed on a 360 degree revolving set. The shots were completed with artificial playing card, class splinters and a full 3d background to indicate forward motions and complete the illusion. As additions the movies includes lots of matte painting effects, blood simulation, muzzle flashes and an array of more traditional effects and clean-up. In total approx. 60 shots.

Great behind the scenes from Fido on their tvc for swedish pharmacy with Aliens.

 A look on how Fido created the aliens for the Apoteket commercial, where a young boy is abducted by curious aliens. Fido designed the aliens and did both practical and digital effects, including set extensions and digital enhancement of the alien masks.

Some transatlantic collaboration between US/Canada and Geramany + Sweden with Fido heading up the VFX.

[vimeo=http://vimeo.com/50591342]

Commercial for the search engine Kayak needed a sequel and Fido stepped in to rework the octopus so that he could speak. We then created all new shots with him speaking, perfectly imitating the look set by Image Engine in the old shots.
