Shoots have now been completed for the two digital media films in this year’s slate that have live action components. The Brass Mirror is being directed by Susan Danta and Starcross’d by Patrick Clair. Both productions had a hectic lead up with pre-planning a crucial element to the success of the many effects-driven shots. The Brass Mirror is a Korean folk tail which features computer generated characters composited over backgrounds made up of live action miniatures. Starcross’d is a graphics-driven short film featuring live action elements which are rotoscoped and integrated into 3D environments. Both films are due to be finished by the end of the year and will require extensive post production by a small dedicated team of specialist students.
