e-RING - "BRIDGE DESTRUCTION"

 

Zoic Studios
Sr. VFX Artist - 2006

  • I did not composite this shot.
  • Shot derived from a single still photograph.
  • Painted clean plate which consisted of removing the bridge.
  • Modeled the bridge in 3D and camera projected original plate back onto bridge to generate textures.
  • Wrote a MEL script to auto fracture the bridge, set it up as a soft body lattice and then simulated it shattering.
  • Simulated Fluid explosions as well as used stock footage explosion.
  • Used Maya Paint Effects to generate foliage which was then synced to the blast to blow around.
  • Car and character flying off bridge were completed by Lochlon Johnston.
