Maestro Paypass
About the project
This job was pretty much super smooth from beginning to the end. I made several different previews for the card-animation and the client even made a scribble of what he wanted to see. I was on set for this, met the people and had a fun time. The result speaks for itself for I find it is a very beautiful piece of film from RAW to final.

Most of the work I did for this project was keying and background replacements. For this I used Red Giants Keying Suite and most of the plugins that come with it. I had some troubles with the depth of field of the old lady but eventually I found a nice solution for it. For such shots I highly recommend shooting both actors separately and without any DOF - you can add the depth of field later and you don't have the problem of blurry edges.
Switching cards
Having a hand in front of a green screen doesn't give you a green card in keying and or problem-free whatever. In this case I had to also remove the original card she was holding in her hand and switch it with a new one. I cleaned the card in Photoshop and rebuilt the icon in After Effects so that I could animate it on and off. A little shine is going on as well. The background is made of several layers of particular particles.
