Our latest international work with a touch of magic will be broadcast in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the UK.
The Fakir in the opening shot was modeled and textured based on a 3D scan we made during one of our visits to De Efteling. To make him fly and integrate well in the shot, we also made a full scan of the environment. We matched the light, simulated the carpet and added blossoms to the scene to make it come alive.
The rollercoaster shot involved quite a bit of cleanup work because it was raining now and then during the shoot.
The snowy scene was shot during summer, so we added the snow in post-production and needed to chop some trees in comp. Also the Pagode was added after the shoot.
To make the dragons more exciting we added extra fire, smoke and heat distortion.
