"Elysium" - Trillions of Surfaces Tech Demo
The San Rafael, California based Whisky Tree VFX house just recently released some breakdowns for their work on Neil Blomkamp's Elysium. The reel shows off how they created, layered and populated the entire landscape of the stunning offworld colony, which was designed by legendary designer Syd Mead.
If there's one thing that movie could have used more of, it was a little more immersion into that beautiful setting they established once the protagonists reached Elysium. We were given a small taste, and then spent the rest of the movie running around corridors. Check out Whisky Tree's 2014 VFX reel after the break, covering more of their digital environment creation skills!
