Overall VFX Supervisor
Rodeo FX Crew
Our artists completed 60 visual effects shots for Arrival, the alien visitation movie from acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners, Enemy).
Led by VFX supervisor Arnaud Brisebois, our team worked from the early development stages on the the concept art and the atmosphere of the interior of the alien spaceship for which we also created the digital environment.
We created many additional elements in 3D, including CG aircraft exteriors and interiors, fighter jets in flight, a helicopter taking off and landing, and a spaceship interior. The most technically challenging sequence has Banks and Donnelly entering the alien ship for the first time, through a tunnel in which gravity disappears, allowing them to walk vertically up the shaft. Our team created full digital doubles of the actors, including the challenging fabric texture of their orange hazmat suits.
