Searle Street Post handled the post-production and visual effects on the ABSA Marbles ad, directed by Velocity Films’ Keith Rose for The Jupiter Drawing Room. It’s a charming, nostalgic story about a little boy and his marble collection.
Naomi Anderlini was the lead flame artist, while Searle Street Post’s Theuns van Rensburg and Graeme Armstrong were the VFX artists.
Momentum is a gripping, fast-paced action film starring Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and James Purefoy (The Following).
Set in Cape Town and funded from South Africa by producer Anton Ernst, Momentum is directed by Stephen S. Campanelli, who’s worked as a camera operator on many of Clint Eastwood’s films.
All the post-production was done in South Africa with Searle Street Post, including the dailies, grade, online and VFX. In all, we graded over 4000 shots and delivered 850 visual effects shots in just three months. This was the first time we’ve handled all the post on a feature film, a significant milestone for us.
Congrats to the team: VFX supervisor Heino Henning; onset VFX supervisors Jeremy Hattingh, Graeme Armstrong, and Meredith Shearer; VFX artists Udesh Chetty, Graeme Armstrong, Theuns van Rensburg, Cyril Schumann, and Charmaine Greyling, as well as the CGI team of Peter Herbert, Adrian Bergoff, Alexander Gilfillan, Arri Reschke, and Claudio Pavan.
