“Limbo” is a feature film in development, directed by John Stalberg, Jr.
We shot this “teaser trailer” to illustrate the style of the VFX world that would be created for the film. We shot thousands of background plates of downtown Los Angeles and then also shot live action scenes, mostly on a greenscreen stage, to capture the actors performances. Acclaimed VFX vendor BUF then created the “frozen/afterlife world” you see here, using the background plates as a reference, and of course also adding visible breath to the actors. In fact we used practical ice, snow, and “plasm” on the actors, and BUF further polished those elements.
