Would anyone really helpful be able to tell me how this effect was achieved? It is from the opening sequence of melancholia - http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9UkBTrFRhKk effect is from three mins ten to three mins twenty seconds.
Youd be doing me a huge favour and i thank you in advance for any thoughts and tips
That was shot in a real water basin...
What Mylenium said. If you want to try something like this with green screen you'll still need to film the water live or you'll have to buy a Fluid Simulation package for your 3D app and spend days learning how to make it work and $$$ to license the software.
