The Directors Guild of America is to host a special event entitled 'Practical Magic: Integrating Mechanical & Digital Effects' on Saturday, October 11. On the panel will be VFX Supervisor Stefen Fangmeier presenting Prime Focus World's VFX work on Relativity Media's Earth to Echo.
PFW delivered VFX for several of the film’s stand-out moments. Working directly with director Dave Green, who will also be speaking at the event, the PFW team delivered shots that focused on 'Echo' using its powers to manipulate massive physical objects, breaking them apart into thousands of pieces and re-joining them together again. These shots included the assembly of a huge spaceship, and an in-motion big rig which was disassembled and reassembled within seconds, to its driver’s disbelief.
The event will be held on Saturday 11 October at 10am in DGA Theater 2 - be sure you check it out if you are in the area. Further details below.
