Trace, 2011
directing, editing, compositing, 3D effects

My final term Masters Project on the NCCA Digital Effects MA at Bournemouth University.

Trace is a visual-effects driven narrative piece, telling a story of love and loss experienced by a living piece of graffiti. The graffiti character was shot on greenscreen. The imagery was vectorized using Adobe Illustrator, to create a stencil aesthetic, and details added using Photoshop. The graffiti character was composited using Nuke into live action plates shot on location in Bournemouth. 3D environment geometry and effects were generated using Houdini and used to augment the shots.
