Moving mountains at Vū Studios.
Since Vu Studios opened last month, we’ve been dying to spend a couple of days exploring the vast capabilities of their Volume. Together with Director, Joshua McGowan, we set out to make a spec piece equally as beautiful as the new BMW QX6.
We spent a pre-light day with Director of Photography, Chris Adams, honing in the perfect light to compliment the LED screens while Art Director, Brandon Eller, created the environment for the foreground. Our Visual Effects Supervisor, Joel Robertson (FourthCrown), attended to the details - literally moving mountains and oceans around to get the most realistic background for our scene.
Our production day was spent fine-tuning the little details that would truly make the piece shine. Lighting tweaks for car shine, moving a digital tree a bit to left, and ensuring that interior leather looked velvety smooth.
Because our pre-production process was so thorough, our post was pretty easy. Edited by Joshua McGowan and colored by Lathrop Schmidt, we couldn’t be happier with how the final piece turned out!
