The Last Dragonslayer
We were asked by Director Jamie stone to bring life to the magic effects for Sky 1's Christmas special The Last Dragonslayer.
The trick with the magic effect was to illustrate the character of the magician conjuring it and also the strength of the magic involved. To achieve this we created a light tendril effect that could range in its smoothness, colour and energy. In addition we digitally added light effects to the surrounding sets and actors to put the magic more believably in its environment.
Along side the magic effects we also created set extentions for the city, using matte paintings created in house and compositing them with smoke elements into the live action plate.
