Red Sparrow


Francis Lawrenc


20th Century Fox

Jennifer Lawrence re-teams with her Hunger Games director. Based on the 2013 novel of the same name, the film also stars Charlotte Rampling and Jeremy Irons. It tells the story of a Russian intelligence officer who is sent to make contact with a CIA agent in the hope of discovering the identity of a mole. Everyone loves a ballerina assassin, right?

Atomic manipulated some tricky retime work, mixing multiple plates together. In the very long shot in the bar, the background needed retiming as only parts of the original take were required. We completed some complex rotoscoping of the actors, and painted back the missing background to ensure the final composition was seamless, whilst making the actors stay on point. In one shot, Charlotte Rampling’s expression wasn’t quite right so minor face replacement was used.
