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.

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.

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 for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, we were invited to a galaxy far far away for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

Highlights include: boarding the Millennium Falcon (and crying), filming Han’s famous “Chewy, we’re home” line (and crying), reuniting with Trek and Bad Robot buddies, meeting new talented folks, and witnessing cinema history. It was truly the most amazing experience of our lives, so we did our best to capture it for our fellow fans. Thank you to everyone involved!

Videos (so far): Episode 8 Announcement, In-Home TeaserThe Score, “Legacy”, Comic-Con, Falcon “Hunka Junk” Teaser. See stills from our footage!
