Directors Think Tank directors 'Underpants' deliver last minute animation shots for Hollywood blockbuster "The Greatest Showman"

Greatest Showman.jpgDirectors Think Tank directors Underpants (aka Paul Freeman and Rachel Guidera) recently delivered some last minute animation shots for film director Michael Gracey's feature film 'The Greatest Showman'.

The Great Showman is movie directorial debut for Michael Gracey and stars Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya. The film is inspired by the story of P.T Barnum's creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of it's star attractions.
Film director Michael Gracey said, "Rachel and Paul came in at the 11th hour and did some of the most difficult and beautiful compositing in the film. The 3D they did is so photorealistic no one knows it was an effect. I have always been so impressed by the two of them, they are some of my most favourite artists working today!!!"

DTT's Stephen Douglas added, "I have known Paul and Rachel (Underpants) for over 20 years now, they are truly a gifted and unique team. Their live action/animation, VFX work output is outstanding! Add to this the fact they are two of the nicest people in the industry".
