Rodeo FX lâche des alligators numériques pour Crawl

Par Shadows

Le studio Rodeo FX dévoile les coulisses du film Crawl, qui met en scène une ville de Floride envahie par les eaux et les alligators à cause d’un ouragan.

Il était évidemment hors de question d’utiliser de véritables reptiles : Rodeo FX a donc animé des créatures virtuelles. Une autre tâche était la gestion des extérieurs à partir de décors créés en studio, avec pluie et éclairage artificiels de façon à contrôler la météo.

Battle at Big Rock : comment ILM a créé le court-métrage et ses dinosaures

Par Shadows

Nous vous avions récemment présenté Battle at Big Rock, un court-métrage promotionnel pour le futur Jurassic World 3 (et visible plus bas si vous l’aviez raté).

Le studio d’effets visuels ILM, fortement impliqué dans ce projet, nous présente un making-of vidéo. Le superviseur des effets visuels David Vickery explique la collaboration mise en place avec le réalisateur Colin Trevorrow.
Il a fallu créer quatre nouveaux dinosaures, dont un juvénile. La production virtuelle a sans surprise été un élément clé du projet, et a permis de tourner la prévisualisation en 2 jours.

On appréciera en particulier les images de plateau, avec notamment un rig dédié pour le dinosaure carnivore : un acteur pouvait contrôler position et orientation de la tête, tandis que des marqueurs ont permis de capturer les mouvements.
