UFC “Evolution” Show Opener

The new UFC show opener for which I served as Visual Effects Supervisor. The fighters were all rotoscoped from UFC’s archival footage (ranging from Super-VHS to HD quality), digitally restored, and reprojected into new camera angles on a transforming digital set. The crowd elements were shot on a Canon 5D at a recent UFC event at the Honda Center. Hans Zimmer provided the score.
