Now Is Good to go

Having an idea is one thing, but having a great team pull together and understand my vision is essential in delivering great work. We have just finished and delivered the final main title sequence for Ol Parker’s ‘Now Is Good‘, and I want to take this opportunity to thank my team for a job well done.

They are:
Executive Producer Dominic Buttimore and Producer Mark Farrington at Th1ng in Soho, where the sequence was produced.

Senior Designer Dean Wares, who as always, was involved in the initial design concepts with me and created all the hand-drawn type for the titles as well as the original line illustrations seen in the sequence.

Rotoscoping Artist Chris Walker, who’s job was to extract Ms. Fanning from every frame (no pretty green screen footage for us!). A time consuming feat indeed but Chris pushed on relentlessly and as a result we were able to treat Ms. Fanning’s performance with a nice, illustrated animated sequence.

VFX Director Sean Martin, who was responsible for bringing to life the original idea and building the sequence. By tracking the original footage in a 3D tracking package, Sean was able to find where the camera was in the live scene so he could then create an After Effects camera to move in the same way. He then was able to bring together the layered illustrations onto a 3D stage to replicate the original footage in our illustrated style.
