We were approached by TNT to come up with ideas for the open for a teaser for Season 3 of Falling Skies. The turn-around time was tight. The client’s brief: ACTION!, and it is about aliens. In the end, more human action was included to convey the chaos and tension created by the aliens. The execution was a mix of live action and CG. It took us 6 weeks in total to wrap it up, from the time we were called to pitch until final delivery. We produced a :30 + :45 open for two different teasers. The production included a live action shoot in an abandoned factory complex in Santiago and lots of 3D integrated over the live action. Doing VFX on location was a lot of fun, we played with explosions, a radio controlled helicopter, high speed cameras and three talented stunt peeps running through mud, fire and smoke. A kid’s dream.
