This beautiful and dynamic piece was the perfect match for our Flame op Pete, with his graphics design background and his eye for creativity.
The challenge was to create a 20 second conference opener using a single hi-resolution still photograph – a satellite snapshot of a city at night.
Using Flame’s virtual camera and displacement mapping techniques, expert VFX artist Pete Young was able to gracefully move around the detail areas of a city image and create a realistic, all-immersive sense of depth and perspective.
Pete animated each light tendril within the photograph individually to give a sense of live city lights that are glowing and emitting out from within the nucleus of a busy metropolis.
Having worked with the ITV Creative team many times before, it was great to get back on a project with them again. They have lovely projects and are super nice guys!
