Besides the scenes with added CG, the car computer scenes were the most challenging during postproduction. Already at the set, it has to be clear, how the shot will look like in the end, which motion sequences are necessary and how much time they will take.
The camera was guided manually alongside the screen with the carrier of a model railway -- the camera shake was removed afterwards by motion tracking. The screen content was designed in Illustrator CS5 and CS6 over a long time and animated in AE CS6 with key frames and expressions -- in this way, for example, all the speedometers are linked.
The dust of the original shot was extracted from the picture with the help of Photoshop, the green markers were spotted out, perspectively straightened out and finally superimposed on the screen content. Additionally, chromatic aberration was added for a firm keystroke and the reflection of the finger was simulated with color gradients and masks.
We are two students from Munich, who love to create media content in our free time. We made this trailer with the help of friends, who took over the acting roles. Our equipment was actually bad, except for two good cameras.
