THE WATERBOY

Flash Film Works, working with visual effects supervisor David Fogg, performed most of the effects work on the Adam Sandler comedy, "The Waterboy." We were responsible for creating the morph effects when Adam Sandler pictures his opponents as someone or something else. We did some composite work to fill in the crowd in the stands of the football field and to make it appear as though Adam Sandler, Kathy Bates and Fariuza Balk were riding a fan boat thru a swamp and we colorized some black and white footage of a notebook to make it appear to be green.

Here we used Elastic Reality to morph the lineman into Henry Winkler and the head of the coach into a baby.

 


We used Chalice to composite the entire football team into Henry Winkler.


For a number of shots, we had to expand the size of the crowd to fill the whole stadium.
