NZ Opera: Macbeth behind the scenes

These sped up videos are always fun. This is of the photo shoot and post processing. Watching the trial and error was enlightening. So even the professionals experiment - they don't just have a vision and realize it.

the video

The end results are stunning. But I have to admit I'm a bit surprised that they didn't make the fake hair look the same as her real hair...or is it my monitor.

Fascinating, Nice one
interesting to see how much work was done on the female as opposed to the male model !
and am i the only one who wished it was slower ! ! and knew the thought process as it went along

Re: NZ Opera: Macbeth behind the scenes

I can see a lot of doubt in many aspects of the compositing (where and how to place the crimson fabric) to make me think that it doesn't come as is which is reassuring at some point. The fast speed stuff is annoying as it can make people think that it's something that can be done with no thinking (like in the Ipad ad: sequences shortened ) and we miss the coffee breaks with all the comments, argues, brilliant ideas... all the hidden process...but nice video indeed. There's something brilliant in the kingdom of creativity.
