Invisible VFX for Invisible People

Lost In Space was commissioned by The Human Eye Corporation (Bangkok) to create several shots for an NGO short film designed to raise awareness of the plight of statless people.
Working with director Rupert James, Lost created several shots of a young woman moving about a city leaving no reflection – with no visual trace of her existence.
Without national identity papers stateless people are essentially invisible to the government of the country in which they reside. They have no access to education or health care and are more vulnerable to human trafficking and other forms of exploitation than people with identities.
The live action shots were carefully planned to allow for reflection removal while not placing unnecessary restrictions on the production. By reducing the number of passes required to a bare minimum and working for the entirety of the shoot on location without a blue screen real creative freedom was given to the director and dp.
The film was created for Plan International as part of their global Because I am a Girl campaign.

Jake Markwell the Nick Producer on the spots was very enthusiatiic about the final spots and says

"These spots have gone down amazingly well and have even featured on a reel that the Nickelodeon managing director presented to clients. I couldn't be happier with the end result, they look really polished and the camera moves are some of the best i've seen on my 3D projects."

Lost goes typo-tastic with FROST for Woolworths South Africa.
After harbouring long term ambitions to work together a nice spot for Woolworths with a fairly open brief presented the opportunity.
FROST DESIGN sydney has been working on the Woolies brand for some time and was delighted to step up and apply their skills to this TVC project. Collaborating with Lost In Space's asian based crew allowed for speedy and cost effective execution within a tight schedule. 
Initially several storyboard styles were presented and a Jaunty Type based solution executed. 
Music composed specifically by DGMUSIC in Melbourne working closely with the creative team.

Initial Concept Designs:
This early version of the spot based on Concept Art work developed by Firman Machda, Senior Lost In Space creative, demonstrates how creative direction can change during production. This Version was created to answer the "sexy" typographical based brief. Subsequently the creative direction changed to a simpler 2d "Punchy" look and the music tempo was increased to create the final version at the begining of the post.
