Snip ‘N Tuck – Plastic Surgery NY Style
Nip/Tuck meets Extreme Makeover in this series that follows the real drama at a New York plastic surgery clinic. From consultation to recovery, the programme gets up close and personal with the wealthy plastic surgeons as they transform and reshape patients who in turn embark on an emotional journey hoping to change and improve their lives.
The sequence used footage specially shot in a New York studio and Directed over the telephone. The two featured patients were put on turntables against a white cyc. The material was sent to London where we edited the shots, then warped and morphed the bodily changes in Autodesk Discreet Flint, before grading and adding the butterfly shadow animations that were made in combustion, and the end title.
