Another Roger film we where happy to do the VFX work for. Backplates from space and also from a paradise beach in Thailand. The aliens where partly “man in suit animatronics with moving eyebrows” and partly CG. Things like facial expressions and also the eyeballs where replaced with Cg eyeballs that we could animate under CG reflections.
Syndicate where called in to VFX sup the shoot that took place in a studio in Zurich and also cater for the paradise beach plate shoot, stay there for a week and capture back plates for it all… Really tough work.
And then yes, composite it all together.
Previus film from the same campaign.
Link to an article and the clients later re-edited version of the film that we sadly did not have time to do the VFX work for.
