Rodeo FX collaborated for the first time with director Terry George (Hotel Rwanda) and visual effects supervisor Mark Russell (The Wolf of Wall Street, Minority Report) on The Promise, a drama that takes place during the Armenian Genocide.
The studio completed nearly 100 shots, including the recreation of early Twentieth century environments such as the city of Constantinople and an Armenian village. The biggest challenge was the creation of the establishing shot of the Constantinople bay along with many completely CG vintage vessels.
The film features Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, and Charlotte Le Bon and is released in theatres today in the United States and worldwide in the coming months.
