NHL Legends Unite with the Help of VFX
Darling is a post-production company that specializes in colour grade, VFX and finishing for international advertising. The team at Darling recently worked on an ad for the Canadian Cancer Society, who partnered with NHL and NHLPA to unite the hockey community in support of people living with cancer and their families. Paul Binney, Flame Artist and Partner at Darling, gave us an insight into the process and how they created this important ad for a great cause. This was a great project with a bold and ambitious idea. We were asked to composite many different NHL legends together on the bench over multiple shots. The idea was to visually illustrate the line: "When it comes to cancer, we’re all on the same team."The initial challenges were unique. We had to marry footage of different eras seamlessly together. Not only were the broadcast colours of the vintage footage different from that of contemporary footage, but they often had different frame rates, aspect ratios and scan modes. We were getting an assortment of footage and we truly were at the mercy of what was being provided. Getting a composite like this to work is a sleight of hand and this is where Autodesk Flame shined bright.
Capturing the spirit of the World Cup using Autodesk Flame and Maya
JAMM is an independently owned, artist-driven visual effects studio known for delivering exceptional creative. Most recently, the team worked on a commercial for FOX Sports to promote the US men's national team at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. There was a very short turnaround. First they shot the players on an empty field in Austin, Texas, and then they had to create the background objects, including the stadium and crowd. There was not enough time to have the numbers printed on the player’s jerseys in the commercial, so they had to add those via Autodesk Flame.
The Vanity Creates CG Environment for Canada Life
This project was to create a commercial for the insurance and financial services company Canada Life. Other than creating the CG environment itself, some of the challenges faced involved the creative and technical issues on set. Autodesk Maya was used for pre-viz to reveal the characters and their placement in space. All in all, there were 20 different passes, each with 1,000 frames, which meant 20,000 frames of footage! There was a lot of rotoscoping and some of it in slow motion.
Visual Effects for HBO Series: "The Plot Against America"
“The Plot Against America” is based on the 2004 novel of the same name, written by Philip Roth, taking place during the World War II in New Jersey. Most of the work required by LVLY involved keeping everything correct in terms of reflecting that time period. The VFX Artists removed non-period items from the live action shots, such as traffic signals, air conditioners and non-period people, signage and cars in the background. They also took on a couple of large day-for-night sequences.
