Global Business Forum - Africa 2019 by Artology
The one-motion-shot style video created by Artology for Dubai Chamber of Commerce’ Global Business Forum - Africa 2019 had to be turned around in 45-days. The cinematography required carefully orchestrated shots to ensure synergy and harmony between the live action and VFX scenes.

Some of the challenges included matching camera speeds, movement and lenses on both the VFX and the live action footage. The whole video was done in CG (Previz) action. Once completed, the team needed to match every second between the animation and the edited footage. When post-production started, there were multiple teams working on multiple tasks simultaneously.
