Another commercial done at Troll where I was mostly involved in doing shot conforming and keys.

The whole project was actually one of the smoothest I’ve ever been involved with, apart from one small thing. The EDL we got from the edit only contained the absolute timecode which Hiero, for some reason, had trouble reading. Two hours of banging head to the desk followed until we finally got the whole thing conformed. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about matching edits, it’s that it’s either a complete breeze or a huge, time-consuming nightmare. There’s no middle ground.

My job was to pull the key for the girls and for all but one of the horses. And yes, it was kinda tricky. Uneven background and flowing manes are problematic to say the least. Rest of the comp by Juuso Kaari.


In comparison to the other shots, key for this one was incredibly easy and came out just right. For once!


Again, did the key and provided some animated textures for Vesa Jokinen to use in the comp. LightWave’s procedurals are really nice for that kind of thing.


Removing the players from the field in this shot must have been the hardest comp I’ve done in my whole life; it took me at least fifteen minutes.
