One of our favorite techniques was on display with this teaser trailer. It's what we call, the one-shot-willy!


Using a single tracking shot from production of Marilyn's dressing room, we brought the legendary actress to life. A combination of soundbites & driving lyrics drive the pace as she shed her mask of fancy pearls & gloves to reframe the viewer's perspective. And topping the list was a compositing challenge; digitally moving the mole on our Marilyn look-a-like’s face to the right spot. Holy Moley! With a little bit of rotoscoping magic, we delivered. While there might have been some smoke & mirror tricks in this spot, it’s always the real deal when our creatives dive in.
