QUIETMAN PANICS AT THE DISCO

Here’s a nicely staged and well-shot brand new video for Panic At the Disco that makes you wonder how they did that. The walls of the shoulder-mounted aquarium tanks are double-paned which keeps the talent dry and the fish wet but the trick left tell tale edges in the water that shattered the illusion. Using a color warper and other color-correcting tools, Quietman lead Inferno artist Karen Heston removed evidence of the panes by retouching the tanks then carefully rebuilding natural reflections. Marine flora and fauna were also added to mask lines in certain scenes.

    I just wanted to add that Travis Kopach was the director on this and I think it turned out great. I’m glad I could help sell the illusion for him 🙂 -karen
