How did we do it
Here's the Making of our commercial
First we filmed a professional breakdancer in front of bluescreen with 2 DV Cams and 1 DigiBetaCam at the same time. Then the Video was edited and included a few "retime" effects. Next we printed all frames (25 frames per second PAL) and drew a totally new character with pencil and paper over the whole sequence, except the shoes.
Next the drawings were scanned and hand colored with 10 Layers in Photoshop frame by frame. If you look closely you will see that every frame is colored differently. Thats why we got the flickering effect. We didn't wanna get that clean look you see everywhere. So we put some dirt onto the background.
Then we tried to key the shoes from the video sequence. It did not turned out too good because we did not light the bluescreen correct. So we had to cut them out with alpha masks by hand frame by frame. Last we composed (Combustion 2) it all together.
Please notice there's no filter or anything else but drawings and the original shoe used for the clip. Maybe that makes it a little different and special. We handcraftet each frame induvidually, the total of over 500. It's our fist project at The German Film School. There's more to come.
