Production company Compulsory.film came to us with a host of VFX requirements for their upcoming music video for J Hus.
The party piece of the vid was to string a series of shots of J Hus, performing in a London studio, into one seamless shot.
Below is the VFX breakdown of J Hus going from studio, magically duplicating himself and then appearing for a third time through a car window.
In the video, we sprinkled a bit of VFX magic here and there, mostly focusing on rotoscoping, tweaking green screen footage, and swapping out faces with different shots.
Heads-up to all aspiring VFX directors out there – be cautious with green screens. They can be tricky and, in this project, they actually added to our workload.
Take a look at the shot below. It showcases our work inside J Hus’s car, where a big part of the challenge was managing the green screen’s color spill and altering the window reflections.
It’s a straight up After Effects bash, with Roto and Matte Painting services provided by RotoOut in India.
