The Midwife II
Project: "The Midwife 2" - TV feature film
Director: Hannu Salonen
Cast: Josefine Preuß, Genija Rykova, Adrian Topol, Alicia von Rittberg, and many more
The plot of "The Midwife II" takes place a few years after the first film and draws Gesa even deeper into the world of medicine and its sometimes gruesome historical development. Focal point is the old General Hospital in Vienna, the origins of which date back to 1693 and which today exists in a modified form. For the purposes of the film, the Disability Wing in Prague was transformed by means of elaborate props in the time-honored Viennese hospital.
FBB built the entirely computer generated historic city of Vienna of 1800, developed opium dream sequences, and designed the title sequence. VFX work included computer-generated set extensions with green screens, day/ night match-cuts, matte paintings, cg city establishers, cg hospital buildings amongst others.
