After getting fired from his current job as a pilot and dumped by his current wife, Valle seeks to find a new job. Out of desperation on the job market he disguises himself as a woman in order to get a job from Silver, a company seeking a female pilot. The lines between his female and male life as well as his personal and love life starts to become a blur which he eventually cannot handle.

 

For this film, Storm Studios produced all views from the cockpit.  The cockpit set was filmed in a flight simulator with greenscren outside the windows in an airplane museum in Vesterås in Sweeden.  We produced the cloud vistas using the software package Vue and comped them into the plates.  For the sequence where the plane decends rapidly through the clouds, volumetric clouds were produced so that the plane could fly between and even inside them.  These clouds were quite heavy rendering-wise, and rendering one of the shots with volumetric clouds could take several days.  We also produced full cg shots of the plane exterior when it is seen flying.

 

Storm also produced a number of mattepaintings for the sequence where the plane has crash-landed on the ground in a field. The field was filmed empty, except for the farmer and his tractor.  We then painted the airplane, wreackage and damages to the field.
