This was my first (nearly) all-Nuke workflow on a project. I started by digitally constructing a realistic clouded glass eye and blending it into the actress’ eye socket. She’s supposed to be stuffed and mounted there, but the actress and camera both move ever-so-slightly, so the digital prosthetic (which basically covers everything between her eyebrows and cheekbones) had to be matchmoved to the original plate.
‘The Provider’ received the top and final honours of “Overall Best Film” as awarded by English film director and screenwriter Neil Marshall (The Descent), as well as the local Jury Prize “Best Film” and “Best Costumes”. I started work on it long after the contest itself had finished, so I didn’t get to meet much of the talent behind it, but major props goes to the director, Brianne Nord-Stewart, the cinematographer Amy Belling, and everyone else who worked so hard to get ‘The Provider’ out the door.
