UPDATE 15 - Miniatures!!!
Just wanted to give you a quick update so you know we're alive.
Phew, glad to say that at this point we are at the end of miniature shooting. All in all we needed about 30 miniature VFX shots for Slice and we soon realized that on the average we can do one shot per day. Usually it's a 5-10 second shot. The setups are really complex; for each shot it's a completely different scene we have to plan, arrange and detail, program the motion control and only then can we start filming it. We do about ten different light passes per shot, and after each shot I go and composit it roughly to see if it all aligns.
Of course, not EVERY shot turns out great. You can't nail every single one of them on the first try so we ended up reshooting some shots which added even more days to our schedule.
The most important thing is we are very happy with how it all looks, and there will of course be a new Production diary soon, but for now here's a few BTS photos:
Hope you like how it looks! We also started the sound design process these days and the music sessions are around the corner too!
Oh, and BTW, follow us on Instagram for a bit more regular updates, and if you don't have Instagram on your phone you can visit it here and check out some more BTS photos: SLICE OF LIFE INSTAGRAM
