    Water Simulation in Jupiter Ascending



    We knew from the beginning that we would be working with Directors renowned for their visual creativity and it would be the responsibility of VFX to help bring the Wachowski’s wonderful imaginings to dazzling yet realistic fruition. One of the major sequences in the film is the Chicago Chase, a futuristic dog fight including multiple interactions with the Chicago river. The complex and unusual nature of the chase choreography meant that our highly experienced water team encountered fresh problems. In this talk we will look at the unusual challenges the Chicago Chase Sequence set our team and the technical and artistic solutions found to resolve those challenges.
