Tiësto & Jane Zhang — Budweiser MV

tiësto_&_jane_zhang-budweiser_mv
City ​​and raincoats:
Made of fabric simulation for shearing, with the lights of the city, for capes skaters. Clean-up of technical constructions and other defects. Modeled city in the background for a smoother transition between frames;

Girl Zebra:
Made rotoscoping of girls to put on the Plate. Added fine particles. Made clean-up of suit defects;

Inc.-girl:
Made the fluid simulation for growing decorations on the girl’s head and covering her hands with gold. For this was animated cg-hand, modeled gold plate;

Bus Stop:
Modeled bus stop with posters and holo sign. Made clean-up for auxiliary structures in the scene. For transformation of the girls have been carved and connected together the two frame. When passing through the hologram animated display of masks and effects are added;

Masks:
It was produced by the object tracking masks on the faces of the actors, who were replaced by cg-masks.

Waka Flocka Flame — «Game On» ft. Good Charlotte

waka_flocka_flame–game_on
Collaborating with Director Darren Craig out of The Uprising Creative, Digital Domain, Gloria FX created this music video ‘Game On’ for Waka Flocka Flame featuring Good Charlotte.

‘Game On’ is a soundtrack to Chris Columbus’ blockbuster ‘Pixels’. The fragments of ‘Pixels’ alternate with artists’ performance in this music video. Waka Flocka Flame and Good Charlotte were being shot on a dark set with green elements to combine into one scene. Digital Domain had given the materials that Gloria FX integrated into the video.

Our vfx-artists created a number of lighting cubes. In addition to this, we had to consider the fact that the light from the cubes and CG characters could have an effect on musician bodies, so we created a light reflection. As a result, we see digital environment with the classic arcade game characters.
It was implemented the disintegration simulation of Waka Flocka Flame on the pixels at the end of this video.

David Guetta — «Hey Mama» ft. Nicki Minaj

Made hide fasteners decorations.
Replacing the sky, the addition of storm clouds.
Made keying actress on a green screen to create the holographic effect and replace the background.
Made simulation fiery exhaust from the muffler of the car. Made rendering, compositing, 3d modeling cottages / tents in the background. Adding a sci-fi effects on the box of the projector.

Sandra Kolstad – «My Yellow Heart»

sandra_kolstad-my_yellow_heart
This interesting project in a few scenes was created sandstorm generated using special software simulation of fluids in settings that include parameters close to the real physical quantities such as temperature, speed, density, lift, force convection, diffusion rate, subsurface dispersion, etc. Several frames to a sandstorm was added destruction of the earth by means of simulation of interaction of solids. Just simulation of fluids used in the scene where a brown horse turns into a unicorn. With the help of animations and simulations were modeled animated pulsing stones, mountains. Were also made modifications to rain in some scenes and complete replacement of the sky for a more subtle mood transmission. In general, this project touched all sectors of visual effects, ranging from tracking, grouting, simple post-processing to a fully computer-generated scenes of the destruction, weather effects, revived stones inversion of gravity, converting, creating a planetary atmosphere, etc. Were used: Matte Paint, modeling, texturing, Lightning, animation, simulation, post-processing computer graphics.

Redfoo – «Juicy Wiggle»

redfoo-juicy_wiggle
In this project we generally improved picture quality due to clean up scratches, chips on the floor and walls. Some plans beautywork techniques were used. Add different elements, such as serpentine (simulation), adding elements of floor (matte paint), adding fire to the piano (simulation), a talking dog (post-processing methods), strengthening the effect of spray cans (post-processing methods). In the project a lot of graphics that the audience does not notice, because everything was done in order to create the illusion of a live recording.

Galantis – «Runaway (U & I)»

galantis-runaway
The main objective of the project was to create a three-dimensional mask that would overlapped the old mask. In this project to apply the skills tracking, since the material is not taking into account that in the future will be the imposition of a three-dimensional graphics. Tracking procedure is very complicated due to the lack of trackers. By request of the customer in a three-dimensional mask were added elements of interactivity — the mask was to respond to the gestures of the protagonist. Some scenes were added eyes to add the desired point in a video more dramatic.

Imagine Dragons – «I Bet My Life»

imagine_dragons-i_bet_my_life
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.

Kasta – «Korabelnaya»

kasta-korabelnaya
Gloria FX performed the following work for the project for Kasta — «Korabelnaya»:
Matte paint — prolonging the streets in the French style, the replacement of the sky.
Replacing the houses on the horizon.
Replacing a modern fence on the old style fence. Creating and substitution of ships at the sea.
Substitution special footage in a reflection on the lens of the binoculars.
Screens — Replacement image in the TV screen. The imposition of an old tv and lenses.
Character Animation on the hill. Adding characters pirate symbols, hats, swords, spears, raincoats.
Simulation- raging sea, the simulation of foam on it.
Replacing the sky – from simple on stormy.
