Testing the “Pro” in Apple ProRes

Warning: Illegal string offset 'custom_page_theme_template' in /storage/content/27/2008927/ on line 345

Some testing from stopp.

Testing the “Pro” in Apple ProRes
This test started out to check color fidelity with Apple ProRes and The Foundry products like Nuke and Hiero. We knew from earlier that results wouldn’t be ideal.
Later we expanded the test to other video applications and encoding software to see what that would give us. The outcome was quite disturbing. A format most people believe to be stable in terms of color turns out to be not so “Pro” at all

Bredbandsbolaget breakdowns | Stopp

Warning: Illegal string offset 'custom_page_theme_template' in /storage/content/27/2008927/ on line 345

Nice breakdowns of bredbandsbolaget from Stopp. Keep it coming!

Agency Acne Advertising and director Oskar Bård came to Stopp with two
imaginative scripts for the new TVC campaign for Bredbandsbolaget.
After the first meeting everyone agreed that the way to go was to
create a lot of the characters and environment in CG to realize
Oskar’s vision.
The Stopp Vfx team was super stoked to be a part of such a fun

project. CG assets to be created and animated was everything from a

monster with arms like an octopus, to a giant space rocket. All in a
bright Bredbandsbolaget fantasy world.
In close collaboration with The Stopp vfx-team Oskar started to
visualize the script in to pictures and also developed a fighting

choreography. The next step was a test shoot in the studio.

The first choreographed test shoot was later edited in to a first
rough cut. And further developed in to detailed animatics for the two

Bredbandsbolaget | Stopp

Warning: Illegal string offset 'custom_page_theme_template' in /storage/content/27/2008927/ on line 345

Film#2 from Hobbyfilm and vfx by Stopp for Bredbandsbolaget.



In this second installment of Bredbandsbolaget’s new commercial campaign, agency Acne and director Oskar Bård went far beyond the fencing tentacle monster and asked us to create a film where high speed is the unmistakable message. Set in BB’s white world, we follow a girl in her armchair, surfing progressively faster and faster, illustrated by being quickly dragged away by a pack of mechanical dogs, on top of a high-speed train, sitting on top of a high-powered rocket, and the whole thing carried on BB’s shoulders.

Stopp Vfx began by creating an animatic for the whole spot, using this we could decide on camera angles and timing and for planning the shoot. The live action elements were carefully filmed to get angles and light just right to make a seamless composite with the CG world. For the more distant shots, a CG-double were used for the girl and armchair. Stopp Vfx developed the look in collaboration with the agency and director, our team worked with modelling, lighting, animation and compositing for about 6 weeks to finish the spot. Sound production, final touches and grading were also made in-house here at Stopp.–-snabbare-an-snabbt/
