The scene was rendered in Blender cycles 2.8 with 1200 samples. Making the scene took us about 30h - mostly due to it being extremely laggy
(building BVH and initializing took 2.5 hours!!!)
Of course we had professional equipment as you can see .
Unfortunately it was very windy on the day we shot the greenscreen footage. So basically one person was standing in front of the greenscreen getting hit in the face by it every few seconds and the other person was waiting for the one moment were it was possible to take a decent photo. Not ideal conditions. After that it was Photoshop time For this render we used awesome textures and assets from poliigon.com
