This project presented many challenges and since we love to push the boundaries we jumped at the chance to collaborate with WRG. Our role was to take live action footage of a swimmer at sea and place them within a swimming lane of a regular pool. The lane and swimmer would then be composited back into the seascape. It soon became apparent that we would need to rebuild the whole scene, including the swimmer himself in CG. So, we set about hand animating the swimmer after watching hours of footage of swimmers in action. We then created simulations for the water, sea spray and swell before combing all the elements to create the final film.
