A behind-the-scenes look at the in-camera VFX created for the BMW Mood Film i8 Illumination. Cinematographer and VFX technical director Christopher Webb and his team developed a host of practical effects to evoke a sense of motion and energy while the i8 remained stationary in their studio.
Working behind the scenes, I documented the team and the tools and methods they used to create each of the visual effects in the film.
