Alter Ego recently teamed up with Holiday Films director Ed McCulloch to create an epic depiction of the struggle on and off the battlefield for returning US war veterans. Utilizing the entire Alter Ego VFX team, McCulloch was able to enhance many aspects of the battle scenes. Senior VFX artist Andres Kirejew lead a team who tracked and retimed explosions as well as created 3D elements to heighten the sense of realism in the trenches. Colourist Wade Odlum put the finishing touch to the spot by creating a filmic look in keeping with the heavy subject matter.
