We are proud to have contributed to Universal Pictures’ The Fate of the Furious, which just took the title of biggest worldwide opening in film history, and are pleased to have teamed up once again with series VFX supervisors Mike Wassel and Kelvin McIlwain, with whom we collaborated on Furious 7.
Rodeo FX artists delivered close to 300 shots for four key scenes. The film’s Berlin sequence includes digital environments, set extensions, matte paintings, CG cars, fire, smoke and collision debris simulations. Our artists helped augment the giant wrecking ball that allows Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his team to escape their pursuers.
The team also created set extensions for the sequence that takes place in a prison, in addition to bullet impacts and stunt enhancements. In the sequence that takes place in the fish warehouse, which hides a hi-tech garage filled with luxury cars, Rodeo FX used matte painting to extend the garage.
The global smash The Fate of the Furious is now in theatres worldwide.
