I worked as a compositor on the blue screen heavy series Cell 2 at Pure Grass for Endemol. My work included keying, building new backgrounds digitally and SFX. This project was very interesting in that apart from props and a few piles of sand here and there everything was to be added in digitally. No sets whatsoever. It was a very enjoyable project because the freedom was brilliant. We were given photos of things like trees and pipes and walls and using Photoshop and After Effects we had to build up the scenes using them. I would say the end result looks something like a game or graphic novel, hyper real in a way with this technique and heavy AFX lighting.
