Timo Schaedel / Platige Image: Hotpoint “Land of Heat”

Timo Schaedel and Platige Image present an otherworldly landscape in Hotpoint “Land of Heat”. It’s a lovely study of light refracting across hot and hotter air, creating a watercolor meets macro-photography effect.

Platige Image has a photo gallery of macro-licious stills at their facebook and a making-of below.

I swear I hear “to give you the perfect cocaine… Experience cocaine, in high definition”.
I think it’s the accent!

jake sargeant

almost a shame all that super detailed texturing had to get heat warped….super rad vfx/compositing breakdown…bravo to all involved!

Harm van Zon

I sooo agree, in first I didn’t even knew what I was looking at. It’s until I saw the making of that I noticed what I was looking at and how superb the details are..

Jim Howells

Technically impressive but I agree with jake sargeant, gets kinda ruined by the heat effect. Also, a lot of CG jiggery-pokery for an end image that could have been achieved practically.That’s Platige’s thing though and they do it soooo well :)


Fantastic!!! What tools did you use?


Does anyone but me think it’s odd to cook already frosted cupcakes?
