"When Boyd dies and finds himself in the Spirit World, he learns that his estranged son is about to make a terrible decision—and only Boyd can stop him."
I acted as VFX artist. All the work is done in After Effects, although there was some 3D work done in Houdini and Blender that ended up being scrapped.
For the rings scene, I used the Saber plugin by Video Copilot and some Saturn reference photos from Video Copilot and NASA respectively. To preserve the feeling and style of otherworldly-ness, the director had me not add a reflection in the water (so please don't ask why it's not there :) ).
