Company / Institution / Agency:

  • Framestore CFC


    Using Maya, Houdini, and Renderman, the Framestore CFC teams created the climactic final sequence in the film. The chamber sequence features painstakingly created Phoenix, whose digital feathers were the result of muchoriginal R&D work. The basilisk features in 45 shots and is notable for its detailed and characterful appearance. In addition, the blend of CG water andreal water elements that place it convincingly into the chamber environment are a brilliant example of both 3D know-how and the compositors’ artistry.
