The Embassy's VFX Work on District 9

The Embassy team worked on 109 shots for District 9, including the scorpion-like alien creature scenes and the sequences in which lead character Wikis is forced to use alien weaponry to blow up various objects. While all of the sequences required varied cameras and visual effects to drive home the authentic feel, the Exo-suit sequences stand out as a distinguishing use of vfx software to further the perceived reality of the film.

To start, CG Leads Matt Rouleau, Simon Van de Lagemaat and their team built and animated the Exo-suit in XSI and then rendered it in mental ray. The surfacing and texture painting was done in Zbrush and Modo, then it was composited and GenArts Sapphire plug-ins were added. Stephen Pepper, The Embassy's compositing supervisor for District 9 said details created with GenArts Sapphire were integral to achieving the film's convincing visual effects. Read more

Zombieland breakdowns

Quelques breakdowns des travaux de compositing réalisés par CIS Vancouver sont présentés en grand nombre sur Animation World Network.

"After working on Rome environments for Angels & Demons CIS Vancouver did nearly 110 shots for the wild and gory Zombieland (directed by Ruben Fleischer), including a "seat belt" lesson and the opening 90-second shot in semi-deserted Washington, D.C., which is all CG. Mark Breakspear, CIS' visual effects supervisor, tells all."

Bill Desowitz: So, what was it like working on a zombie movie?

Mark Breakspear: Well, it was a lot of fun. Like any small budget show, they still have the same big ideas as big budget shows. We started talking to Paul Linden, the overall visual effects supervisor, about the kind of work that they had and at the time it was some driving composites, but then the movie developed, as we knew it would, and suddenly there were a bunch of CG shots that they wanted: some environments and this great shot.
