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.
