Rodeo FX recently delivered 100 Visual Effects Shots for Justin Timberlake’s Music video ‘Supplies’, in one month of production.
The video from pre-production to delivery was accomplished in a remarkably short time span, calling on Rodeo FX’s artists to combine their technical talent and dexterity with a certain artistic freedom, ultimately influencing and enhancing the final look of the video. The clip features 10 distinct scenes, each with unique technical and artistic requirements and challenges.
The technical complexity of this video is highlighted in the compositing that was done for the four main environment matte paintings, including green screen footage and crowd duplication. Another imposing challenge was creating the scene with the floating bodies, for which each person was filmed at 200 fps jumping on a trampoline. For this scene, Rodeo FX used a Python plugin developed in-house for “art-directable particle system replacement” to set the bodies in the air.
