VFX for Leno & Letterman: RETIRED!We directed, shot, and created the visual effects for Adam Ray’s latest comedy.

For this ejection seat explosion, we used fluid simulation to create computer-generated smoke and fire. Normally we try to use actual explosion footage, but this required very specific timing, shape choreography, as well as high interaction with the moving van. The final simulation took 8 hours to calculate, and each frame took 2 hours to render.

Rejected Folgers Coffee CommercialDave directed this sex-and-drugs-filled Folgers Coffee commercial starring comedians Adam Ray, Jon Rudnitsky, and Courtney Pauroso.

James, the Director of Photography, shot on anamorphic lenses and graded in 4K, making this our first project finished in Ultra-High Definition. Ghostlight also removed Adam’s front tooth using Visual Effects, which involved animating and replacing his tongue and lower teeth. Produced by Brian Dillingham. Makeup by Salette Corpuz. Music by Alfred Montejano. Thanks everybody!

Star Wars The Force Awakens Teaser 2We got to work on STAR WARS, our all-time favorite movie series! Having previously shot all the behind-the-scenes footage on J.J. Abrams’ previous film Star Trek Into Darkness, we were invited to join him again in a galaxy far far away for the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, opening Christmas 2015.

Highlights include: boarding the Millennium Falcon (and crying), capturing Han’s famous line (and crying), reuniting with Trek and Bad Robot family, meeting new talented cast and crew, and witnessing cinema history in the making. It was truly the most amazing experience of our lives, so we did our best to capture it for our fellow fans who couldn’t be there. Thank you to everyone involved. We can’t wait to see this movie!
