In this short breakdown clip you can see the animation process of the establishing-shot from our new animation short film „Migration – Menschen am Markt“ for the NGO weltumspannend arbeiten. The miniature set made of cardboard has been captured with a vertical crane, the movement is 3D tracked and a set extension/matte painting is applied. Several additional digital objects complete the scenery.
For these studio shootings, our task was to capture the „extras“ for the Migration-Animation film. Several people (and a dog) were shot in front of a green screen environment to later extract and merge them as black and white coloured pedestrians, who should fill up our cardboard-set and create a crowded scenery in which the protagonists, which are animated, will appear.
The second thing was to shoot the eye region of our main characters, which were then later integrated into the painted and animated figures.
