CASE STUDY: MAKING OF UBOAT

 

THE BRIEF

Have you ever wondered what a beached U-Boat would look like if it were to be washed out of the ocean onto a UK beach? Parker + Biley were wondering this very thing so they decided to create what they had imagined. Perhaps it would look something like this image….

 

 

THE PROCESS

After finding the perfect location we had to wait for the light.  The background image was shot and we were good to go back to the studio to create some digital  magic.  Having modeled  the U-boat a few years earlier we pulled it from our archive and started to position into the backplate.  Camera data taken from the day of the shoot allowed us to match the  angles perfectly.  We then created  textures for the U-boat and played with the lighting until we were happy with the look and feel.  The hi-res rendered  images were then put  into photoshop where we comped  them  into the original background image.
