Why is on-set supervision essential?
On-set supervision is an essential resource for any project. Errors during the shooting sessions can have drastic knock-on effects further down the pipeline. The on-set supervision is the way to avoid the unexpected in post-production and in our case, in the Matchmove process.
What does an on-set supervisor do?
Standard operation requires that the visual effects supervisor meets with the director and producer to discuss the script breakdown and specific VFX needs; and based on a firm understanding of the director’s expectations, the VFX supervisor will collaborate with production department heads and orchestrate a whole chain of duties that he will distribute to his team members accordingly.
