Our team joined forces with the X-Men franchise for its latest instalment Dark Phoenix, creating all the effects for the fatal Grey family car ride.

The brutal sequence was shot onset and we cleaned up the plates, recreated the interior of the car, created digi-doubles of the Grey family, and enhanced the crash, adding flying debris.

Our biggest challenge was creating the Energy Bubble that Young Jean produces to protect herself during the crash. Director Simon Kinberg requested that the bubble not feel ‘magical’, so our team used debris and other effects to make the bubble feel realistic.
