A major part of this production was making a believable world. Together with Anomaly we designed a digital studio warehouse as a shooting location, complete with all the objects and details you’d expect in an actual studio where people live/work. We took special care to make it all as believable as possible, with details like cables taped to the ground and little mistakes and imperfections like blemishes on objects and creases in fabric.
Yeah, That’s me!
We timed the camera with the dominos in such a way that a real cameraman could move with a real-life speed over the same set. Once we had that straight we shot our own “fake cameraman” against greenscreen to capture the reflections of a cameraman walking with a camera in the computer-generated content – you can see him in the laptop’s screen reflection. Additionally, we used the same cameraman stand-in to cast believable shadows over the domino action as we move around.
