Every project is different. "They" required subcutaneous worms to crawl up a victim's arm and erupt into
tentacles as they burst through her palm. The production company provided; the Green Screen element,
reference artwork, and the background reflection in the mirror. A two dimensional approach was taken for
the subsurface worms, generating them with Lightwave and compositing them with a displacement filter
in Digital Fusion. The tentacles were also generated in Lightwave, but as traditional 3-D elements.
