Teaser spot for netflix’s upcoming series “Lemony Snicket: A Series of Unfortunate Events”. Working closely with the director designing and implementing the CG Leech, Raven, and Spiders correctly for a great results, which garnered over 3 million views on youtube in less than 4 days.

I am a big fan of hiding CG elements in real footage, and will opt to shoot the material correctly to use the real environment and assets to make a very real and aesthetic look to the VFX elements. This is worked very well using a Mirror ball and lighting everything primarily with image based lighting for all the CG in this spot. Creating realistic lighting and reflections for truly seamless results.

Utilized my own custom built server, and render farm to create all the visual effects for this spot.

The Jar the Leech is in was shot practically. The foreground and the background of the jar was isolated to add the leech, particles, water, dirt and smearing to the inside of the jar.
