Oblique FX Delivers Visual Effects for Sicario Posted: 17/12/2015
Oblique FX Delivers Visual Effects for Sicario
Oblique FX created 123 visual effects shots for Sicario, the latest film from director Denis Villeneuve. Sicario tells the story of a young FBI agent (Emily Blunt) thrown into the violent and lawless world of the drug trade across the U.S.-Mexico border. A gritty, realistic drama, the story required subtle effects work to blend seamlessly with the cinematography of Roger Deakins. Oblique FX, the main visual effects vendor on the project, contributed CG vehicles, set extensions, blood and wound effects, and, in one grisly scene, mutilated bodies hanging from a bridge - all indistinguishable from the live action elements in the film.

AERIGON UAV Captures Footage in London of James Bond in Spectre
Intuitive Aerial's AERIGON UAV was used on a key action scene in Spectre, the latest addition to the James Bond movie franchise. Helicopter Film Services (HFS) flew its AERIGON just above the rooftops near Trafalgar Square in London as Bond, played by Daniel Craig, races up a fire escape. Easily lifting a 6K RED Dragon and Zeiss Master Prime lens, AERIGON provided the power and precision for ultra high resolution capture of the dramatic sequence. Together with the best production cameras and lenses, AERIGON allows today's filmmakers to capture creative shots that often couldn't have been achieved any other way.
