ROLE: Flame Artist | VFX Compositor
CLIENT: 20th Century Fox
VFX SUPERVISOR: Edson Williams
DIRECTOR: Doug Limon
For Doug Limon’s teleportation thriller “Jumper,” I worked on a number of shots for the final showdown between Anakin and Mace Windu … I mean Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson.
During the action-packed sequence, the showdown begins in an apartment, teleports to the bottom of a river, then concludes in a university library.
For the apartment jump, which results in the destruction of the upper floor, I contributed cracks and debris to the interior, warping and collapsing elements to the exterior, and underwater debris for when it appears beneath the river.
Also, I augmented a series of shots for the character of Millie, who’s trapped underwater due to the river teleportation. For this portion of the sequence, I composited CG bubbles and debris, as well as the environmental warp effect for the final jump back to the library.
