Our team was delighted to collaborate once again with director Eli Roth and VFX Supervisor Louis Morin on this magic-filled movie. Our team of 150 artists from Montreal and Quebec City, led by VFX Supervisor Alexandre Lafortune, was tasked with bringing to life the griffin, the automatons, Baby Jonathan and the Clock Room. A lot of time was put into the shading, the look dev and modeling of the automatons, which are seen from up-close.
For the griffin, our artists were provided with an onset plastic topiary, which, although it was the right scale, took our artists 4 months to work on its vegetation, twigs and lion aspect. For the Clock Room scene, our artists embarked on extensive research of gears to create the 450 pieces of CG gears and pipes that make up the shot.
Inspired by Steven Spielberg’s personal collection, we modelled and animated creepy automatons for their close-up.
The House with a Clock in its Walls' Clock Room features 450 CG pipes and gears that we intricately made to fit together
