GloriaFX performed the project “I Bet My Life” for Imagine Dragons. In the projects was used 3d model of the bottom of the dam. Sinking artist was filmed under the water, for the real dynamics and behavior of hair and clothing. GloriaFX made rotoscoping to separate it from the background, but also used artists background to align with the live filming with the rendered on a computer environment.
In some shots main character legs were cut of or add.
For this project was modeled two locations, the outer part of the dam and the drain pipe in the cut. According to the dynamics were created several footages, which were used for animating scene elements, these included: fish, all the debris just hovering in the water, or is drawn into the pipe, bubbles. Bubbles were partly created partly filmed.
In general, for a relatively short time, our team was able to complete this unusual but quite interesting project.
