In this fantastic world, a young orphan girl embarks on a journey to the far reaches of northern lands to rescue children kidnapped under obscure circumstances. With the help of strange characters, magic dust and a golden compass, she discovers a parallel universe where mysterious forces oppose each other.
Our team has completely recreated the environment of the opening scene of this adventure film, revealing in alternation the real and parallel dimensions of the same set. This remarkable work also required matte painting and compositing.
