A great ‘31 Days of Oscar‘ promo from Fresh Paint is packed with stunning visual effects. “Using a combination of shot elements and 3d, we were able to bring a contemporary feel to otherwise classic movies.” As we look at this more from a vfx and Digital F/X point of view the spot shows a fascinating way how to combine footage, blend different scenes, mix the movie clips with the crew that is on stage and use effects like rain, smoke, lightning many, glass shattering, explosions and many other animations. This 2 minutes spot was done as a In Theatre promotion for TCM’s Oscar block of programming.
