The very laid back smile of Taungaroa Emile
DOP Ben Nott setting up for Taungaroa Emile's boots to be whipped off. These will be composited with the green-screen shot of the slippers going on (also shot coming off but then the time reversed so the appear to magically slide on). The whole comp would then separate left & right foot to stagger the timing and all placed over a clean-plate shot of just the fire-place background.
DOP Ben Nott and the furry stand-in for lighting tests.

Adjusting lighting for CG wall transformation
Two green screens were setup for the exterior shots of the donga. Needing the light to be overcast the crew race to setup before the morning sun hits at 7am.
The final form our chair / green screen rig took. Taungaroa Emile and the camera are both lowered into the comfy air-chair whilst the plastic chair (sawn in half) is pulled away.
