At the beginning of 2009 Platige Image began working on over 80 takes for the latest film by Lars Von Trier, «Antichrist». This project was a great challenge partly because the Director himself was our client, and partly because the effects we were working on were an unusual blend of subtlety and horror. It is difficult to talk about typical Hollywood effects full of spectacular blasts or characters in this project. Even if our work is much more subtle, it had a considerable influence on the final version of «Antichrist».
The effects were various. There was a vast array ranging from the least complicated tasks such as joining two scenes which would have been impossible to shoot simultaneously e.g. a scene with a couple having sex and a small child in the foreground or the one with a boy falling out of the window. There were also many takes which were a simple collage of several movie doubles. Yet, we will describe a few main takes out of all the 80 that we were working on.
