MICHAEL KENNEDY and JUSTIN JONES were the VFX Supervisors for HAMMERHEAD on 400 shots in HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS for PARAMOUNT. MICHAEL traveled to Berlin to assist VFX Production Supervisor JON FARHAT in overseeing the plate photography.
During post production JUSTIN and VFX Producer REBECCA MARIE managed the hundreds of greenscreen and bluescreen comps, matte paintings, CG gore and explosion fx, and anamatronic enhancement shots.
The HAMMERHEAD team on HANSEL grew to over 80 artists to accommodate the volume of complex work.
Portions of HANSEL were also shot in native stereo and, in those cases, the final delivery was in stereo as well.
In addition, Hammerhead's 3D team under CG Supervisor DAN SMICZEK created a fully CG version of Edward.
