Independence Day: Resurgence
Task: Look dev & Final compositing
- This was the first shot that established the look of the alien invasion.
- I’ve got a bunch of falling 3D renders, small pieces of fire/smoke/cloud and a daylight photographed ground.
- duplicated, and time offset the parts of the cloud to fill it out to the sky.
- created the sunset lighting by masking and color grading.
- added explosions, fire, smoke, water waves, splashes, and reflection.
- created falling small objects (rocks) using particles in Nuke.
- made a template of the fire sky and handed out to other compositors for their shots.
