Some transatlantic collaboration between US/Canada and Geramany + Sweden with Fido heading up the VFX.

Commercial for the search engine Kayak needed a sequel and Fido stepped in to rework the octopus so that he could speak. We then created all new shots with him speaking, perfectly imitating the look set by Image Engine in the old shots.

Check out the latest Water simulation extravaganza from the team at Important Looking pirates. Battleship VFX in a 50 s tvc. Impressive as always (I’m a bit biost 🙂 ) !

Don’t forget to watch the breakdown.

After wrapping up our work for the feature film Kon-Tiki, the Norwegian director duo Joachim Rönning and Espen Sandberg offered us a new great challenge!
They were directing an epic piece for the Norwegian oil guild. The 60 sec full HD spot is about the “secret” wonders of the world and the impressive engineers behind those.

The challenge was to create 50 seconds of full CGI with complex dynamic water simulation. A task that was right up our alley having completed some very complex water shots for Kon-tiki.
We did the simulation work with the Naiad fluids solver and we used our in-house volumetric render engine “Tempest” to be able to render the millions of particles needed to convey the scale of the shots.
By the end of the show the work files took up 30 terabytes of on-line storage, a factor that is easy to overlook when working with complex simulations.

It was a great pleasure to work with Joachim and Espen on this spot and we are very happy with the result!
