Whenever there are visual effects in a production, it is crucial that an experienced Filmmore visual effects supervisor is present on set. Our on-set supervisors will be there to help the director realize his or her creative vision in order to produce stunning shots and avoid mistakes that could complicate the production. The supervisor will break down every shot and create a strategy to create a shot within the budget.
Filmmore supervisors are experienced and have gone through every step of the visual effects process. They bring in a vast amount of experience and can offer a unique perspective.
Filmmore offers the technique of previsualization (or animatic) that allow filmmakers to visually express their ideas into a moving context. Filmmakers have the ability to put together entire action sequences into an animated perspective. It uses 3D animations in a three-dimensional environment that offers no boundaries and endless possibilities for filmmakers to explore their creative vision. It helps directors to design their shots and place it into a sequence before filming. It can act as a living sketchbook and sets a step further then the usual storyboarding. This allows filmmakers to clearly present their ideas to the cast and crew and plan their shoot in advance. Previsualizations provide cost effective options that assists in decisions to lower the costs of the production of designed shots.
In earlier days, Matt Paintings were hand painted on glass plates. Nowadays the artists work digitally. Here at Filmmore, matte painting is cherished for the satisfaction and creativity these kinds of shots give. They can really add finesse to a story, from set extensions to texture details. Our artists use Photoshop and Mari and integration is done in Nuke by our compositing artists.
We have huge experience with a wide range of compositing tasks, from retiming shots, stabilising and tracking camera movements to rotoscoping, keying blue and green-screen shots and integrating cg elements in 2d footage.
With our own unique pipeline our Compositors can work in close cooperation with our Grading team. That way we can exchange and integrate shots in a flexible and creative manner. The result will be projected, in context, on a big screen – grading included.
We try to involve the client as much as possible in the creative part of the compositing process, partly by means of review sessions and work in progress updates.
At Filmmore we can offer a complete package for title design. Too often the titles are the neglected part of the project, we believe they deserve more credit, love and attention. They can help you create an atmosphere or style or even add a layer to the story. Sometimes adding the right typography to a project is enough. But we van also go all out and help you with concepts, direction and design of Main title sequences (leaders) or create tailor made typography.
