VFX Artists Help Create Thousands of Sports Fans
Stop-motion animation involves physically moving the objects in the film, usually clay made, in small increments between individually photographed frames. When the frames are played in a rapid sequence, it then gives the illusion of movement. It’s a painstakingly slow process—an entire day of shooting may only amount to three seconds of footage—but the results are unique in a way other animation mediums can’t replicate.
So when it comes to creating thousands of screaming sports fans in a stadium, what do you do? It would surely take weeks to create a few seconds of footage, the answer: create the fans using VFX.
