Behind the Scenes with PostPanic on TNT “The People Network”

Take a look at the immense and painstaking effort behind the TNT “The People Network” by director Mischa Rozema and his production/post crew at PostPanic in Amsterdam thru agency Etcetera.

IN 2013 The Mill created “98% Human” for PETA featuring a startlingly emotional performance by an all-CG chimp.

Although far more upbeat and ambitious in scope, this new spot helmed by Academy director Frederic Planchon for Scottish power company SSE, retains the intimate character subtleties, masterful rendering and perfect live action integration required to ensure 98% of humans who watch it will believe the orangutang is real.
