DEATH TO SMOOCHY

Flash Film Works worked on the Danny DeVito directed comedy "DEATH TO SMOOCHY" starring Robin Williams and Edward Norton. We primarily performed a number of difficult green screen composites in the film but also did some rig and wire removal work.

For this challenging shot, Flash Film Works artists had to composite the head of actor Vincent Schiavelli

onto the body of the falling stuntman. The wires holding the stuntman were also removed. The falling body was composited with the background and crowds were added into the empty stands from this location plate. For the final version of the shot, we had to create 3D arm and leg extensions because the stunt man's body was not entirely in frame.

In this shot, we had to replace the actual zipper text from the Times Square sign with the text needed for the storyline, recreating the exact look of the words that were replaced.
