The new Eddie Murphy movie Meet Dave, about a spaceship that looks like Eddie Murphy being piloted by a miniature Eddie Murphy, is a necessarily VFX driven comedy. VFX Supervisor Mark Stetson (Superman Returns, Lord of the Ring: Fellowship of the Ring) worked with LA based VFX houses CIS, Hydraulx, Pixel Magic and Make VFX (among others) to deliver the shots. cineSync made communication between all the facilities quick and easy.
"Although we worked entirely with L.A.-based VFX studios, and our post production offices were in L.A., we used cineSync nearly always for dailies and shot reviews" says Stetson, in an interview with VFX World. "That saved us hours in traffic each day. There were key meetings and final reviews where we did get together face-to-face, but cineSync covered about 95% of it".
