The main on end sequence for the film Orphan was a unique project I created with the designer/director Simon Clowes. Simon designed the whole sequence, we both created the visuals and I shot all the footage with the stop-motion software Dragonframe. Dragonframe is a program created by director Jamie Calliri, well known for his arresting stop-motion animations for projects such as the title sequence for Lemony Snicket. In addition to his software, Jamie set up a custom motion-control rig which allowed us to program the camera motions into Dragonframe so we could shoot two identical passes of each shot — one in regular light and one under blacklight. In the end, this gave Simon the ability to cut seamlessly back and forth between the two versions of each shot, revealing a dark subtext hidden under the beautiful surface: reflecting the central metaphor of the film. Images for additional VFX shots for Orphan were created by Chris Sanchez. More about this project can be seen on the Dragonframe website.
