Cocoa VFX & Post (Part I)

September 2018

These projects were created during my time at Cocoa (cocoa.fi), working as a part of the post production & visual effects team AKA Cocoa Studio (instagram.com/studiococoa). A lot of what I did there was invisible cleanup and animation work, but there were some more visible tasks as well!

 

Varjo // Resolution Revolution

My contribution: CGI aircraft @ 1:05-1:17

Animation, shading/rendering, compositing.

Other post credits (aircraft shot) — Supervision & Cleanup: Arttu Rautio. Flame sim & render: Tuomo Kujala. Grade: Joni Kuusisto. Full credits on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/245052714.

 

The focus pull & mega closeup were quite a challenge when it comes to texture detail and managing render times.

 

Had help with the flames, the sim elevated the shot quite a bit compared to my rudimentary tests. Thank you Tuomo!

Beside matte painting and regular comp like masking/roto/defocus and such, I was also tasked with slowing down his blink — fun times!
