Falling Out - Looking Back

Hanna Stanbridge as Carrie

In November I posted a blog entry discussing the development of a script for my short film Falling Out. In it I mention that it was five months prior that I had first introduced the idea to writer Tom K McCarthy, which would make it now 14 months since we began the project!
As the final film is now complete I am taking a moment to trace the project from inception to completion.

Nuclear Explosion - VFX Breakdown

Here is a VFX breakdown hilighting the main elements that were used to create the nuclear explosion in the opening shot of my upcoming short Falling Out.  In addition I created a background plate composed footage of moving cars composited into an HDRI still image.  Other work includes plenty of animated colour operations, glows, motion blurs, procedural noise and liberal use of camera shake!

Thanks to Dylan Gauld for his great cgi work in Maya Fluids.
