DESCRIBE YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE EPISODE AND TELL US SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT YOUR PROCESS MAKING IT:
I worked as an animator on "Anshors Away", also I did compositing, keying and rotoscoping (rotoscoping dacing scenes is not a joke :)
I remember the moment when I understood that my computer program and I can't track 3D data for several scenes where camera was spinning around. I did panic a bit, but God send me wonderful people from hitrecord community who made 3D tracking and helped me so so much! Everything was perfectly organized and done very quickly.
Also, as for the "something interesting", when I searched for the inspiration for dance studio interior, I remembered old movie "White Nights" 1985. There was the dance scene with Gregory Hines and Mikhail Baryshnikov (I found it on youtube). In the movie they danced in Mariinsky Theatre. So it was a good inspiration because I wanted to create studio in classic style, like ball room from an old building.
