Behind the scenes…

The Fresno Rescue Mission spot posed a couple of challenges. It required a broken down swing in an urban setting (which we didn’t have access too) and some compositing work. ¬†We replaced elements in the shot, did some set extension and built a swing set for the urban scene. We ended up rigging a swing attached to a pipe from Home Depot, which was anchored by 2 combo stands. The final shot has the stands replaced with a 3D swingset.

Not a terribly difficult composite for either scene, but just one of many examples that goes into making spots such as these.  Sometimes the best visual FX are those that nobody notices.
