Positionas VFX Supervisor - shoot/post 

website: www.jinsy.com/

 

 

Stephen was the post vfx supervisor for season one and the overall vfx supervisor for season two.

 

This Is Jinsy was the first large-scale VFX project of its kind that the Sky Creative team had undertaken, and due to the nature and sheer size of the project, a new infrastructure had to be put in place to handle both shot capacity and workflow.

 

All of the backgrounds for both seasons had to be bespoke, using a wealth of material that was shot especially on the island of Guernsey.

 

The overall challenges were both creative and technical.

The green-screen shoot for season one covered many lighting scenarios and several environmental conditions, all shot within the confines of the same studio.


Season two utilised a rear projection system to reduce the shot count by approximately forty per cent, dramitically reducing the vfx budget also.
