Constantine - Post Production Summary

I received the July Issue of Cinefex, #102 in the mail today! I ended up creating 5 hi res stills from my hell apartment shot showing a few stages of the shot for Cinefex, but it looks like none of them made it in the issue, :( A good number of other Tippett Shots did though. I was thinking that Constantine wouldn't get a very big spread considering it's tossed in with Star Wars III, Sin City, and Hitchickers's Guide, but it's a nice sized article covering Constantine's VFX, good stuph, just dissapointed the stills we sent that I worked on didn't make it in...

One thing to note is that they do show 2 shots of the Vermin Man done by ESC in this issue, 2 of which didn't make it into the movie and were re-worked and extended by Tippett Studio. The work they did on Vermin Man though was very cool, so it's good to see ESC's work on VM in there.
