One of over a dozen shots completed recently for a pop promo for the artist Gubi's new single "Dances With Billo"

The video was shot against a beautifully foreboding sky that featured a ground mist on the first day of the shoot. This gave way to a clear blue sky for the second day.

"Fix it in post" that famous mantra was chanted and we got down to work. The background and foreground were rotoscoped apart, the motion of the sky line tracked and a matched fog plate inserted to replace the blue sky. Added to that and to the stories ominous feel, a CG comet was added in thundering through the shot behind the protagonist. It was enough to distract the love interest into missing him completely on the road!
