So here it is, The Voice Australia Channel Nine Launch Promo. VFX Supervised and Art Directed by me!
Here a few stills, behind the scenes images and styleframes so you can get a feel for how this project evolved.
Retro looking Ducati on greenscreen. Ready for Joel Madden and a cyclonic wind machine from hell. Filmed at Fox Studios Sydney
Stock footage treated to match the live action footage we shot. The original grey sky had to be replaced and the bike was yellow and the jacket had large sections of white that had to be removed. Apart from that, the shot was perfect.

Kylie Minogue stepping into a private jet with an interesting history. Filmed at Blacktown Airport, Sydney
Kylie Minogue stepping off stage. Filmed at Fox Studios Sydney
An early mockup/styleframe I did of Will.i.am in the ‘future car’. Unfortunately, we decided against using a Lamborghini because of the lack of interior space and the alcantara finish on the dashboard dated it too specifically.
Rick Martin on Sydney Harbour and some rather dodgy notes of mine.
