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.
