This was my first full 2k job involving compositing with 2k Footage. I am real happy how it turned out. One man crew so it took a whille to finish. Also only had 4 machines to render and the ship is half a million polys. It was built for a lot more close up Shots, but director didn't want to do that :(

C&C welcomed.

WOW!!!! amazing. Awesome work. The lighting matches the background plates perfectly. Great job.

My only problem was with the zoom in on the TV near the start. The motion tracking is not fine enough. On both the TV image and on the building in the TV image. But the rest was f'n awesome!

On 9th viewing I think it might be because of the DivX compression.

actually. it was done in the production version of AE 4.1

this spot was finished about 1.5 years ago, but the client waited a LOT to air it. therefore it isn't as sweet now as it was 2 years ago when i started.

It was sorta groundbreaking for me Because it was done with movng cameras instead of loked down shota and i used no green mattes.

Now i do that in every shoot.
