‘The Host’ (directed by Maximilian von Vier)

‘The Host’ is a psychological thriller about an unusual asylum patient written and directed by Maximilian Von Vier.

I was involved with the project as a visual effects artist and was given an interesting challenge: to remove an entire country from a tracking shot of a globe. I used Photoshop to paint over a still from the film and then tracked the mask to the footage itself.
