The two-day tournament was shot on a Canon 60D using the Canon EF 200mm ƒ2.8, Canon EF-S 60mm ƒ2.8, and Canon TS-E 45mm ƒ2.8. All footage was recorded in 720p at 60fps and then interpreted to 24fps in Adobe After Effects to allow for sequences played at 0.4x real time without the need for frame blending. The opening seqence was created in Cinema 4D and composited in After Effects - the rest of the graphics and effects were done entirely in After Effects. Since the footage was almost all shot handheld, I had to do a lot of stabilization in AE using the Warp Stabilizer effect. After all my shots were stabilized and pre-comped, I created the titling graphics and composited them into the scenes using motion tracking and rotoscoping to complete the illusion of the graphics being in the shot. I then used the time remapping feature in After Effects to glitch through time and alternate between slow-motion and real-time. Glitch effects and lens effects were the finishing touch.
