Short Film

This production, planned as a children’s film, was intended to have tadpoles filmed as talking protagonists play in front of computer-generated backgrounds – all in stereo 3D. This short film “Das Casting” was produced as a test to solve the different technical challenges and to test the potential for a feature-length film.

Length: 2 Min. 35 Sec.
Format: Full-HD | Stereo 3D
Year: 2013

Beside the creation of the different CG backgrounds, the keying of the real recordings was of course a main task. The mouth movements for the speaking tadpoles also had to be adapted to the speaker’s speech by means of effects. Title design, various particle effects, as well as rotoscoping were further components of our work on this project.  Due to the production in stereo 3D, all effects had to be transferred correctly to both images – left and right eye.
