Steven Quale directs Into the Storm, the story of an unprecedented series of tornadoes that wreak havoc on the small town of Silverton. The story is told through the eyes and lenses of a range of characters offering multiple perspectives on the mayhem, including professional storm chasers, thrill seekers and courageous townspeople. The action thriller stars Richard Armitage and Sarah Wayne Callies.
Prime Focus World contributed 25 shots of supporting VFX for Into the Storm. The team, led by VFX Supervisor Randy Goux and VFX Producer Justin Gladden, used CG water effects to simulate the effects of the tornado event. The subtle but intricate simulations were used to convincingly pull off the effect of heavy rain on vehicle windows and the road.
Into the Storm releases in the U.S. August 8, 2014, and in the U.K. August 22, 2014.
