EDITING HEDGEHOG INSURANCE DRTV COMMERCIAL
The shoot generated two sets of rushes (raw footage), a studio shoot for the puppet against green screen and a location shoot of cars and roads to provide the live action backdrops on which to place the hedgehog. Using After Effects I keyed out the green screen and masked out the sticks animating the hedgehogs arms and generated a fresh set of rushes with an alpha channel. I then edited as normal picking the best hedgehog takes and accompanying background plates, overlaying the hedgehog over the live action, following the script until the edit was done.
I offline and online edited the commercial in Final Cut Pro Studio, as well as clocking and playing out the station dubs (the finished versions to go to the TV stations).
