BRIEF "MAKING OF"

COMIC CON 2016
"Suicide Squad" VR Experience at retrofitted Hard Rock Hotel Lobby in San Diego
STITCH 10 CAMERAS
keep track of each camera for specific "EA Soldier" kills to matchmove on a specific camera basis
TRACK & LABEL EVERY CHARACTER
...then itemize each of their kills and interactions
ROTO EVERYTHING
yes everything & everyone...ouch.
MATCHMOVE & TRACK THE SET 
...for use as a collision surface, reflection source and GI source
MATCH THE LIGHTING ENVIRONMENT
creating reflective and gray spheres is a favorite past-time of any cg artist
SHATTER "EA SOLDIERS" 
with Houdini trickery...matchmoved heads and bodies as necessary per kill
