STARNO was honored to collaborate on some great VFX work with Groupe Maurice for TV advertisements. STARNO and Bifurk are the proud winners of an IDEA price in the 2021 Best Special Effects category, for the advertising campaign "L'ainé de Demain" - Groupe Maurice ! IDEA is one of the most prestigious advertising competition in Quebec ! Congratulations to the team ! We are very grateful ! Most recently, thanks to the help of several artificial intelligence and visual effects softwares, as well as a meticulous frame by frame digital retouching work, STARNO managed to beautifully recreate the CG aging of four comedians. In this project, close-up shots were a big challenge for STARNO. The strong lighting was not forgiving. Every wrinkle had to be precisely worked on in order to stay believable for the audience.
