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.

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

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.
