Flying Turtle Post Uses Fusion Studio for Looks That Kill

PostFri Jul 24, 2020 1:22 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that visual effects (VFX) company Flying Turtle Post used Fusion Studio VFX and motion graphics software on the new comedy “Looks That Kill.”

“Looks That Kill” tells the story of Max Richards, a teenager born with a medical condition of being lethally attractive, whose life is forever changed when he meets Alex, a girl with a bizarre ailment of her own. Written and directed by Kellen Moore, and starring Brandon Flynn, Julia Goldani Telles, Ki Hong Lee, Annie Mumolo, Peter Scolari and more, “Looks That Kill” is the latest film from Syracuse based production company American High, the producers behind “Big Time Adolescence” and “Banana Split.” “Looks That Kill” is distributed by Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company.

With the film’s cinematography consisting of fluid camera movements and continuous takes, the Flying Turtle Post team was challenged with creating long seamless VFX sequences. According to VFX Supervisor and Flying Turtle Post Owner Shaina Holmes, “Our most challenging sequence was referred to as ‘the big one’ because the plates we received included more than 7,000 frames for just this one shot, which was around five minutes of footage. It follows the main character Max through multiple locations with one long time lapse, so we had to seamlessly stitch edits between green screen shots and place lots of speed ramps to go fast, slow and normal speed throughout.”
