The Sorcerer's Apprentice



Jussing VFX:

Clean plate

On these shots I worked as a compositor, which mostly involved the all-CG quickrug and chain.

The first shot is filmed using a solid floor, so to create the sinking effect the shoes are all CG, and I have stretched his pants.

In the following shots, Nicholas Cage is filmed standing in a water matress that doesn't resemble the quickrug's behavior or shape all that much, so the shots requied much tweaking, warping and hand-painted masks to have the rug fold tightly around Nick's costume.

I also cleaned up various background elements to create a new clean plate, as we were animating Nicholas Cage's position in frame.
