Tesla & TwainWe created the shocking Visual Effects for Tesla & Twain: The Original Odd Couple. This hilarious first episode features creators/stars Rob Kerkovich and Will Greenberg, both of whom we’ve worked with before.

Dave was the VFX Supervisor and created the time travel and blood effects. James composited some of the more difficult multi-Twain shots. Additional compositing by David Wolgemuth.

Watch the Extended Kerkovich Cut! See more stuff we’ve done with Rob & Will! More on this coming soon!

Krantz Visual EffectsGhostlight did the Visual Effects for Krantz, a dark comedy directed by Chris Cantwell. The opening scene required John Krantz to give a speech in front of a giant banner, which we created as a miniature. The movie was shot on the RED, and the Visual Effects were completed at 2K resolution – the same as major motion pictures.

KrantzKrantz is a dark comedy written and directed by Chris Cantwell. James was the Cinematographer. The film was shot on the RED ONE, which shoots 4K resolution and uses 35mm lenses. James used overly-dramatic lighting and tilt-shift lenses to emphasize John Krantz’ warped state of mind. Many thanks to Chris, Brad, Ken, and the entire crew!
