A dash of Italian in the CG team with Leonard Monichi!

LeonardLeo is a CGI artist with international exposure, having worked with client across multiple continents with experience in film, TV commercials, print and web. Along his career he worked in various creative fields: print design, photography, 3d visualization, animation, motion graphics, although in recent years he refocused in 3d and compositing. Since then he tries to make moving pixels to the best of his abilities!

After graduating in Design and Art in Italy he started out freelancing as a graphic, 3d and texture artist. Soon he decided to venture out for a bigger challenge which he found in Singapore, where he pursued a Bachelor in Interactive Animation, and subsequently worked full-time as a 3d and compositing artist before joining Digipost in 2014. His most recent works include brands like Sony, Yakult, Fujitsu, Osim and many more.

Besides the commercial work, Leo keeps challenging himself and learning new tools and expending his knowledge by learning new tools and workflows to keep up-to-date in an ever changing and evolving environment, as is the CGI world.

When he isn’t looking at a computer screen or the viewfinder of his camera, he enjoys playing piano, snowboarding, mountaineering, swimming and most of all reading a good sci-fi book!

VFX supervision on-set in Khmer TVC for Cellcard Cambodia.

The latest promos from Cellcard Cambodia features iconic well-known characters and depicting them in slapstick comedy. Awesome effort from the production team at 391 Films and our in-house team here in Digipost!

Our VFX Director, Anthony Vu, was on set for the VFX supervision. He offers his insights.

 

How was the first experience doing set supervision in Cambodia?

I was particularly excited to shoot in Cambodia. It was my first shoot on foreign soil (I was originally from United States). It was a fantastic experience to see how organized a rather complicated shoot could get, considering we shot 3 spots in 2 days.

 

What were the technical challenges on set and in post?

Like with most spots, you must overcome difficult problems that arise on set. Not having the proper equipment, location (space and resources), so when issues arises that affect the plate photography, many times you have to make snap decisions that will affect the post-production stage.

 

Which was the toughest shot?

All the shots were difficult given the delivery schedule. But if there were one, that would be the angry bird spot as there were many elements involved to composite in post.

 

Can you briefly outline the workflow and the team involve in the post production process?

I will try to be brief. From the beginning to the end in every aspect of post the process, offline, color grading, online, 3D, 2D compositing and finally audio.

As for the team, our heavy lifting department is our 3D and heavy integration department. They really shine on this show in particular, given the tough schedule. Each and everyone of them rose to the challenge and succeeded in delivering 3 commercials in a little over a week.

 

Any final words?

I would like to say this is what post production is about from a personal and professional standpoint. Given the challenges and watching people come together as a team, it is what keeps me up late and wakes me up in the morning. The teamwork and camaraderie that is formed during this challenges has kept in post-production in the last 13 years and I am enjoying the journey.

i Am Sexy by iBasic

One of the sexiest commercials we have done this year for the iBasic brand in Vietnam!

To create the sensual look, the overall picture was desaturated and our colorist, Cyrel De Los Reyes, painted the contours of the body with plays of colour to accentuate the product and body.

Simple, artistic and sexy.
