FILM PRODUCTION BLOG » VISUAL EFFECTS ON WALLACE AND GROMIT 'A MATTER OF LOAF AND DEATH'
We are currently working on a number of shots that require visual effects to enhance the animation and action in this film - things we can't possibly achieve on the sets of the film.
We've currently completed work to 59 shots and the scope of the work has included adding everything from flour floating round in the atmosphere of the bakery, to steam coming off bread, to tyre smoke and exhaust fumes coming from the wheels of Wallace and Gromit's van. As the action heats up towards the end of the film, the skills of our Visual Effects artists are really being tested to the limit with some fantastic effects for the finale of the story.
As many of you may know, our visual effects artists also have some seemingly boring tasks in comparison to effects they are creating - such as painting out a rig which holds the character in place while being animated or painting out a join or imperfection in the set. Our artists have got their work cut out for sure!
Coooooooooll! Good luck!
