Riding on the high of a job well done, the crew of ‘Jagun Jagun’ have taken to Elon Musk’s app, spilling on their work process and boy oh boy am I amazed all over again.
All the film tricks and paparazzi in the scenes you loved, plus some other itsy -bitsy details about the making of Jagun shall you see when you scroll down.
- Remember that scene where Ogundiji’s family was attacked in his absence? Ah ha. Here’s what went into it according to Niyi Akinmolayan, whose studio spearheaded the post production of Jagun Jagun.
My fav thing about this movie is the sheer amount of VFX people can’t see. This scene alone is over 300 layers deep in AE/Nuke composition with tons of elements by @anthillstudios_ . IYKYK 😈😈😈would you love to see a full documentary on Jagun Jagun? https://t.co/BjdfNFB9zd

2. Next is Tolu Obanro, whom I have secretly held an award ceremony for in my head and named the King of theme songs. You will be inclined to agree with this title if you’ve seen Obara’m, and House of Secrets, also works of his. Here, he shares how his team recorded those sounds. Wow?
The chant was recorded on set back in OYO and the backups and instrumentation later in Lagos… the advantage of been there on set and picking up random recordings.. https://t.co/qawRgEJoQ4

3. All the Oduduwa Vikings vibes you got from Jagun Jagun is the doing of people called concept designers. This Niyi Akinmolayan’s tweet will give you a better understanding of what they did.
Some concept design work for Jagun Jagun by Anthill Studios concept artist @LA_DRAWS10 ola does amazing concept art work especially with epic African characters. Was great working with him. I really wanted us to get everything to detail with this film. So glad it turned out well pic.twitter.com/7dmDZ1YRWU

4. There was one particular guy whose Shaolin temple moves were over the top, before Agemo killed his shine. Here, he explains his process and his other contributions to the fighting scenes.

5. Lastly we have the foley artists. a.k.a sound designers. In Jagun Jagun, John Bars and Roseline Anwuli are credited as the sound designers. Here, they share how they used sand and cement bags to create the footfalls you heard throughout the movie.
One of the things not talked about enough is the SOUND DESIGN of #JagunJagunMovie@iamJbars worked his a** off on this. It was really nice watching and learning from him…
