We were privileged to be commissioned by the visionary digital production company, 3angrymen Productions, to create visual effects for a hard hitting NSPCC campaign to combat emotional abuse.
The concept was to show the results of verbal emotional abuse by revealing offensive words appearing on the skin as blemishes and bruising. The method – we used dynamic tracking to lock the effects onto the warping/stretching skin and tracked animated digital makeup effects to the actors’ skin.
Another VFX shot involved digitally augmenting an iris to show amplified dilation.
The result was a hard hitting film that seamlessly merged realistic visual effects with live action.
