Dog Fight - Still Taken From 'Bread & Dripping'
Having played with several different attempts at various visual effects pieces, it was now time to produce a completed short film which displayed high quality computer geneated elements.
It was decided almost immediately that the project should be a ‘period piece’ using as much authentic, real-life footage as possible with computer generated elements supporting and therefore increasing the quality and success of the final short film. After a great deal of thought and consideration, the idea of recreating an average day on an English airfield during World War 2 became the favourate concept.
The production is based on a Lincolnshire airfield during WW2. There is a sudden enemy attack which breaks the peace of an otherwise beautiful Autumnal, English day.

The story was realised with support and enthusiasm from the ‘Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Team’, accompanied by multiple private collectors, providing athenticity in the form of period aircraft, vehicles and other assets.
The piece was shot with live action footage as a plate, ready for additional computer generated elements. The complete composition was developed during post-production in a final effort to heighten the overall cinematic feel.

The production was always intended for digital elements to be composited in during post-production although upon the completion of principle photography, Joep Peters became a part of the team.
“Joep Peters is an incredibly talented 3D generalist who has a passion for WW2 history, therefore once the project had been outlined he was excited to be a part of it. This proved to be an invaluable step for the production as a whole.” Christian Moles
A ’3D Model Wishlist’ was given to Joep and within a very short space of time he had produced the most beautiful models of both a Messeschmitt and Spitfire. These models were fully operational and accurate to the last rivet.

Once the models had been textured, Joep offered up his abilities to animate the planes which was also advantageous due to his knowledge of each period plane’s performances.
“Upon completion of the rendering out of each element from each scene taken from a huge shot-list, it was a joy to composite together the final images consisting of the live action plates and other elements. The high quality 3D models brought the concept to life and really sold the piece!”
“The project developed nicely, and although it was stressful and a great deal of effort, it was a lot of fun from start to finish. I would like to thank each and every person involved, no matter how small the part. Without them all, it would not have been possible!” Christian Moles
