It’s no secret – in fact it’s been on my IMDB page for the last few weeks while we’ve been shooting – that I’m serving as VFX Supervisor on a feature film produced in San Francisco. It is a cult horror film in the classic style: definitely a bit camp (the director – who is plenty notorious enough also to have a Wikipedia entry – appears in the film as the drag character Peaches Christ), even – depending on how twisted your sense of humor is – funny. More John Waters than Saw.
It’s not a big budget VFX film by any stretch of the imagination; we did just wrap our final, and most major VFX plate, the one greenscreen shot in the film, a complicated swap of vertical for horizontal motion via two dollys moving away from one another while the camera shot at high speed (for this one shot, we used the RED camera to get 120 fps). I would describe this and other shots in greater detail but that would, you know, violate the NDA.
I’m thrilled to be associated with this movie; now that we’re nearly wrapped on shooting I can say that there has been crazy good fortune in the production phase of this project and we have some stunning footage to bring into post. You may not have a chance to see it – other than at festivals – for quite a while, but if you like over the top with a bit of gore underneath, watch for it.
