First of the two Santander commercials we did at Troll during the summer of 2013.

I did much of keying work (hard!) and a bunch of other small elements, like the plane on the sky and the flowing water. Just about everything else was the work of Juuso Kaari.

Here’s the original plate. Note the wildly irregularly lit bluescreen. To make things even more fun, the light changes during the shot quite dramatically.

And here’s the key I pulled. Later on it was decided that the tree on the left had to go as well, so Juuso Kaari used some black tracking magic to roto the head of the man on the extreme left.

The plate we received to be used as the background.

The director wanted more apples in the trees so I added them there. For all Nuke users: Transform Masked is your best friend.

Ugliest mask ever done, but it did it’s duty in helping to recolour the fence.

Quick and dirty fluid sim for the fountain.

And the final background. All other edits like the sky were done by Juuso Kaari.

Finished shot before grading.
