Open is a sci-fi short that marks the inception of what we hope will be a long and fruitful journey producing films loaded with stellar VFX. EMAGIC’s dream is to set sail hard and fast into the world of cinematic film and for us, everything about production: from the origin of each story to script, from camera work to the creation and integration of CG elements and from casting to music composition, has EMAGIC at the helm. We want uncompromised, full creative control and artistic licence.
Open illustrates exactly what we mean by this and serves as a tasty sample of what’s to come. It’s the first project that showcases our capabilities. Here’s a brief overview of EMAGIC’s journey from the start of Open to the finish. First, the drone was imagined and created. We then wrapped a story around the drone, and an actor for the lead character sprang to mind. After hearing the concept and seeing a preview of the drone, he accepted the role readily. Next, the location was sourced and a reccy was carried out, with stills taken for shot and CG reference. Then the other CG elements were modelled and tested, a script and shot list written up and the shoot date booked. After the shoot was complete, we edited, added sound effects and added the CG elements in. Finally, music was composed and the film was complete!
