You worked on the VFX for the movie Bill & Ted Face the Music. How did the film and the effects fit into the narrative?
Bill & Ted, their wives, their daughters and others travel back
and forth through time it would be difficult to tell the story
without VFX. They travel to places like Hell and the Future which
only exist as 3D models. The actors were shot against green screen
with limited foreground sets and were composted into the background
sets and digital matte paintings.
The concert that takes place on the Freeway was shot on a large scale set however the set was extended and the skies were all digitally enhanced to tell the story that the world was coming to an end should Bill & Ted not be able to write the song that would save all space and time.
Director Dean Parisot asked that people randomly warp pop in and out of scenes throughout the movie, many of which had to be created in 3D, in order to build tension and accentuate that our heroes are running out of time to save their marriages and the world.
