Wow that is so cool looking. How'd you do it?

Simon Lagoarde's picture

Breaking many Jack bottles + spilling large quantity of "whisky looking" liquid then editing a lot to catch all the best parts : )

Keep an eye, we are making an hard disk drive distortion for the next : )

I thought that's how but wasn't sure. Sure was worth the time and effort, can't wait to see the next one.

would love a bts on this. nice work.

Maybe on a future 'distortion', we didn't have much BTS for this one, sorry.

Incredible execution on your part and the part of the retoucher. Great work Simon.

Like it very much!
I know how much patience and self-motivation is needed to achieve such result.

Nice one Simon, did you rig the bottle elements together and shoot the fluid in place - or comp the entire thing together separately?

Simon Lagoarde's picture

Hi Paul,
Sorry for the delay, I was really busy @ studio.
I shot every element separately, just thinking where the glass elements will be at last to get the right angle. The liquid was shot a couple of days later.
