We were approached by Zentropa Productions, to help them create all the visual effects for a project called “The Secret Society of Fine Arts”. The film was shot entirely with still images, inspired by the visual and narrative style of the 1950s film “La Jeté”. Working closely with the films’ director, Anders Rønnow Klarlund, we produced and visually art directed over 400 visual effect shots for the 72-minute film. The concern with the style of the film was, that simply showing still images would not satisfy today’s audience. Our job was therefore, with the help of compositing and cgfx, to animate and breathe life into the images shot. The result is a uniquely breathtaking film that practically presents the audience with a new work of art at every single cut.
