A Royal Affair | Ghost vfx

Warning: Illegal string offset 'custom_page_theme_template' in /storage/content/27/2008927/vfxsverige.com/public_html/wp-content/plugins/custom-page/custom-page.php on line 345

Ghost vfx supplied some great looking VFX for this Danish feature film called ” A Royal Affair”.

Once again the Ghost team shows everyone their great capacity!

A Royal Affair   | a royal projectA Royal Affair is a pitch perfect period piece by director Nikolaj Arcel. It is based on true historical events that every Danish child is taught about in school; The love triangle between the mentally unstable King Christian the 7th, the Queen of Denmark Caroline Mathilde and a common German doctor Johan Struensee.

After winning two Silver Bears at the Berlin Film Festival, A Royal Affair is now on general release in the Danish Cinemas and has been extremely well received. So far more than 320.000 Danes have been to the cinema to watch it and it has been sold to more than 75 territories. Ghost was involved in the project all the way from the initial VFX breakdown to the red carpet premiere and helped bring more than 100 shots to life, including extremely challenging scenes where we had to recreate large parts of Copenhagen as it would have looked in the 1700’s.

We had the pleasure of being introduced to the show long before the actual visual effects work began. We were invited in as part of the creative team behind the movie and it has been amazing to see the extraordinary efforts that everyone put in. The result is a fantastic film which we, needless to say, are very proud to have been a part of.

Around he world in six ads | Fxguide

Warning: Illegal string offset 'custom_page_theme_template' in /storage/content/27/2008927/vfxsverige.com/public_html/wp-content/plugins/custom-page/custom-page.php on line 345

Great article from Fxguide about 6 ads from vfx houses around the world.

We break down six recent TVCs with visual effects work from studios around the world – Mikros Image, Fuel VFX, Zoic Studios, Glassworks Amsterdam, Mothership/Digital Domain and MPC.

Nissan Juke, ‘Built to Thrill’ – Mikros Image

Building a skydiving car looks surprisingly easily in this Nissan Juke TVC directed by Lieven Van Baelen, with visual effects by Mikros Image. At Mikros, Christophe Huchet was VFX producer, with Antoine Carlon and Laurent Creusot acting as VFX shooting supervisors as well as CG lead and 2D/Flame artist, respectively. We talk to the studio about the ad’s main challenges.

[youtube=http://youtu.be/E36_zr4brCA]

The spot begins with an intrepid driver jumping out of a plane and buckled into a car seat. Soon enough, he is positioned into a car body by skydivers, who get to work – mid-air of course – adding a roof, tires, engine and steering wheel. These plates were filmed against bluescreen with the parachutists and car suspended on wires and the action following detailed storyboards.

Bluescreen plate.

Final shot.


“There were two cameras on the set (in South Africa),” says Mikros, “one was with a cameraman standing on track or on a cradle and the other one on a remote jointed arm controlled by three operators. There were a lot of wires to clean up as there were up to nine parachutists shot at the same time. Each of them was hung by four wires plus the car. We had to deal with ‘restore’ on their faces and clothes. We completed an urban matte painting behind the clouds for high-angle shots. To add realism to the shot, we had to add cameras shakes and vibrations to simulate a real skydive, inspired by real shots references.”
