DARK WATER

 Flash Film Works worked on the Walter Salles film "Dark Water" starring Jennifer Connelly.  On this film we performed a number of different types of shots including green screen composites, color corrections, wire removals and day for night shots. 

We composited the "dirty water" into several sinks and toilets in a bathroom sequence, we composited the "ghost figure" into the washing machine and in a sequence that didn't make the finished film, but was featured in the trailer, we added water rushing through pipes towards the washing machine.

 

 

For this difficult shot, we took the original location plate of the washing machine and composited in various layers including additional washing machine foam, CGI water elements inside the tub, the green screen element of the girl screaming and a plate of her hand against glass originally shot for a different scene entirely. We then took the element of her head and warped it digitally to make it appear as though it forms itself inside the machine.
