This fourth ‘ultimate’ trailer shows off the wide range of VFX shots produced for the film.
Another name change, but the road to release is almost complete. The Man-Bears were created by Korean VFX masters DEXTER Studios.
A title change to suit the censors, 95% of the 830 VFX shots completed.. the race to fill in the final shots, complete stereo conversion, sound and music is now on..
After over a year of insanely hard work, finally approaching the end of post. Chinese, Korean and Indian VFX artists are doing incredible work with super tight deadlines and budgets. Just a small deathmarch to the October release!
The first concept work done on film for the LOTR trilogy, created for promotional purposes before the main shoot started. These used elements shot on film and scanned at a local print house (Weta’s scanner was 8 bit and comparatively lores at that time.) The comps were all done in EDDIE, one of, if not THE, first node-based compositing package created by Animal Logic. And even though I love the latest NUKE, EDDIE still had a better node view. (icons that visually represent their function; isn’t that the whole idea, FOUNDRY?)
