John Carter

It actually has been a while since we finished our work on John Carter. Directed by Andrew Stanton and produced by Walt Disney Pictures, this production was massive and exciting to work on. The quality of work from all the VFX vendors was impressive. We enjoyed watching it on the big screen at the Team Screening here in London, as much as working on it at Double Negative. John Carter is now available on DVD and BluRay.

For about 360 shots I provided workflows for Color Management, Multi-Pass Compositing and Compositing on the shows Opening Shot, a one minute flight over a camera projected landscape with loads of little details and a final entering into a CG indian palace.

Imagineer Systems monet & mokey

We just extended our arsenal of compositing packages with Imagineer Systems monet - placement station and mokey - removal station.
monet and mokey complement existing investment in post production hardware/software by being compatible with most other packages, such as Autodesk Discreet, Avid DS, Adobe After Effects, eyeon Fusion 5, Quantel generationQ, Apple Shake and other compositing and editing systems.
monet is used for high efficient tracking, stabilisation, rotoscoping, match-moving and compositing.
mokey allows us to save shots for you that otherwise could not have been saved within the budget constraints of your client. mokeys key features are removal of wires, rigs, logos, faces, lens flares, scratches, hair-in-gate, warped frames, lens distortion and so on.

Lissi und der wilde Kaiser
