This project involved the creation of a virtual western themed external environment, to be integrated into shot green screen footage of a band provided by the client.

Challenges included:

  1. Cleaning out 28 green screens for 7 shots, where each band member was shot on a separate screen, then integrating this into 1 shot
  2. The client had used over 100 red tracking markers for each shot, with actors with blonde hair and fair skin. Therefore, cleanup of the markers was not possible using a keyer, alot of tracking and roto was required. Until we found a new workflow to battle this.
  3. All of the above including the creation of a photorealistic set within 30 days

The project was successfully finished on time using Nuke, 3DSMax, Photoshop
