Title:

    Blending In - The Crowds of Spies In Disguise

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    Spies in Disguise was the largest and most challenging show the Blue Sky Studios Crowds Team has delivered to date. Crowds were used in 449 of the film’s shots, necessitating a scalable pipeline that could handle a wide variety of crowd characters and performances. From supermassive pigeon flocks to drone swarms, tightly choreographed rings of henchmen to naturalistic groups of pedestrians across multiple cities around the globe, more crowd simulations had to be delivered with greater finesse and artistic fidelity than ever before.
