Halbe Portionen
Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg
Directed by Martin Busker

Halbe Portionen tells the tale of an unusual friendship developing between two boys with different personalities and cultural backgrounds - and each one has its own problem to solve...

In collaboration with Constantin Päplow, who was tasked with modelling & texturing, the challenge was to create a photoreal digital helicopter for half a dozen shots, flying in and landing on the hospital rooftop at a pivotal point in the movie, digital pilots included.
Instead of relying on background footage shot, the environment was created based on panoramic photography and matte paintings.
