Britney Spears did not necessarily do all the work for the hot body she flaunted in her “Work B***h” music video. As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, pre-production stills showed she had a little help from video effects specialists in achieving her toned physique. But how exactly could editors make those changes in post-production? Digital effects expert Devon Talbert described the process exclusively to RadarOnline.com.
Noting that Britney “does appear a little thicker in some shots,” NYC-based videographer Talbert, founder of Devon T Productions says, “In post-production, they may have color-treated it in a way to shape or sculpt the light on her.”
He also explained how the most up-to-date digital cameras, like the Canon Mark III, actually record video that consists of a series of digital individual stills, like those that were leaked by the “Work B***h” visual effects artists at HOAX Films after the shoot. The availability of hundreds of stills documenting each moment of video makes it easy to do editing like a digital slim down in post-production, Talbert says.
Talbert insists he “cannot come to a conclusive decision that she was digitally retouched” since the images leaked by HOAX were not high-res.
