Based upon the best-selling novel of the same name, this motion picture from visionary director Tim Burton tells the adventure of a young boy named Jabob Portman (Asa Butterfield), who uncovers a secret refuge, run by a woman known as Miss Peregrine (Eva Green) and her “peculiar” children. There, he meets the mysterious residents and discover their special abilities.

For Rodeo FX, this fantastic adventure began over a year ago and required the creative work of over 120 artists. Their work consisted of more than 240 visual effects shots totalizing almost 20 minutes of this movie. The Rodeo FX team, led by VFX supervisor Arnaud Brisebois, worked on several sequences of the film, including the following characters: Abraham Portman (Terence Stamp) who had to look 30 years younger, Millard (Cameron King), the invisible boy, Olive (Lauren McCrostie), the girl who sets fire to everything she touches or Horace (Hayden Keeler-Stone), the boy who projects his dreams revealing the future.

These visual effects shots have involved many environment changes, matte painting, 3D modeling, animation and compositing.

Rodeo FX is proud to have been part of the team led by visual effects supervisor Frazer Churchill and producer Hal Couzens, and is delighted to have helped put Tim Burton’ vision on the screen.
