Camilla Skovgaard is a very cosmopolitan shoe designer who hails from Denmark with a very particular and edgy style. This shortfilm almost 4 mins. long directed by Ali F. Mostafa (Director of City of life Site Official – IMDb) and shot in -hot.and.sticky Dubai-. The film was produced to be premiered at Paris and NY Fashion weeks.
Shot in Alexa, edited, graded, comped + all CGI done @ Optix Digital Pictures Dubai during 2012.
I loved working on this project, although it was very hard work. I’ve got all the shots with no green-screen, which should be read as “Dude u need to roto everything”… All the roto was done in Mocha and then the shapes taken to Smoke. Which basically lead to find a bug in the Mocha export module for Autodesk products, which after reported and confirmed (is supposed) to be fixed now.
I will try to post a few before and afters if I ever find the Smoke archive (I know, I always say that…) but I doubt so since it was around 200GB and thankfully off my Stone array now. (This was done with an older storage I had for Smoke which was very small and slow, 400 mb/s, not the nicest.
The asian actress in the bathroom had a terrible acne problem at the time of the shoot, I’ve reconstructed her face almost entirely as seamless as I could, part of it in Smoke and part of it in Mocha.
Lot’s of CGI, I wish I had the chance to comp the moth but this time. Also I wish smoke had a projector like Flame, but again, not for you, not today!
