FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The movie production of "Fireflies
in the Garden" starring Julia Roberts, Carrie-Anne
Moss, Willem Dafoe, Hayden Panettiere, and Shannon
Lucio selects Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights
as their firefly special effects supplier.
Filmed primarily in Austin, Texas, the need to
produce cost effective firefly effects were an
important part of the shooting. Rather than employ
costly computer graphics to create the firefly
special effects, the Firefly Magic Firefly Lights
were used against a 'blue screen' and subsequently
superimposed onto the background.
Stephen Taylor, Lighting Effects Designer for
the Sigma Two Group LLC, said, "While CG (computer
graphics) creates a very nice effect, it is generally
more expensive to implement. When a production
is limited in the amount they can spend for special
effects, more creative solutions are often considered.
In this case, we were pleased that we could support
the production by custom designing units that produced
higher output firefly flashing which allowed for
adjustment during the editing process."
Watch for the release of Fireflies
in the Garden in 2008
