‘Token’ VFX Augmented Reality Film

Abstract or Summary of Project

[Director/ Art Direction and Post-production (Visual Effects)]

Synopsis: “A young boy from a monochromatic space follows a game token and enters another dimension, where one is given the ability to interact with murals. Being lost in a different world, he finds a second boy who challenges him to a race to retrieve his lost coin.”

‘Token’ is a 4 minutes live-action with augmented reality visual effects film, which explores the techniques of green screen shooting and keying, 2D and 3D compositing, particle simulation, and 2D and 3D animation. It is a play of one’s imagination and the combination of 2D graphics and live action elements.

Process and More Details

Process: This piece of work is highly designed, with the central idea of creating a new environment through:

  • • 2D matte paintings
  • • costume and props, 3D modeling
  • • Animated hand-drawn graphics
  • • Special effects make-up + video filters

All of the above mentioned follows a specific colour scheme of bold primary colours. Live action footages of the characters were shot against a green screen, and composited with matte painting backgrounds. The graphic style presented in the 2D animations and SFX make-up have to be consistent, easy to animate and replicate (clean and defined) yet original.
