The Lion City II - Majulah



Australian director Keith Loutit has spent years creating this amazing time lapse in collaboration with Michael Adler Miltersen. Although it's hard to believe when looking at the stills below none of this is CGI as Keith himself explains on his Vimeo page.

to answer the most common question, no the long term construction moves are not CGI. The most significant post work was blending shots from different times of day, or different days into composites.

Be sure to check out Keith's other time lapse videos on his website and Facebook page.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows MoCap Lowdown

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is upon us and two of the franchise's favourite characters get their CG debut, the anarchistic Bebop and Rocksteady, played by comedian Gary Anthony Williams and WWE’s Sheamus respectively. The characters were brought to life once again by ILM and there's a piece about some of the process behind it over here at Cartoon Brew. As well as that, check out the video below for more behind-the-scenes MoCap-ery.

New 5 minute Independence Day: Resurgence trailer lands

For those that remember Independence Day hitting the screens back in 1996 (and  possibly seeing it multiple times), the upcoming sequel offers a welcome hit of nostalgia. There's now a new 5 minute trailer to get us in the mood... It's great to see some of the old characters returning and the trailer shows just how much bigger the scale the adventure promises to be. Prepare for Emmerich levels of wanton destruction.

The VFX of Hardcore Henry

Hardcore Henry is a bit of a landmark movie. Being a feature-length actioner shot in first person (on a GoPro camera no less) the film feels like a new breed of action movie. Produced by Timur Bekmambetov, director of the insane "Night Watch" and "Day Watch" it relies mostly on practical FX but what solidifies the action is the excellent work carried out by several companies to augment it all into one seamless piece of mayhem. There's a great article that goes in-depth on the VFX work over at Indiewire.

You can also check out a VFX breakdown below.

The Orcs of Warcraft

Here's a great piece on the making of the orcs for the upcoming Warcraft movie. It goes into what it takes to make these big guys come alive, including the amazing work ILM have done on facial motion capture. See the article here:

Who you gonna call? The Void

Whatever you might think about the upcoming Ghosbusters reboot, this latest development will give us something to cheer about. Utah based The Void has partnered up with Sony to create what could be the mother of all movie tie-ins. The Void, who are due to open their virtual entertainment centre in 2017, have created a VR experience which will allow people to experience what it's like to be a Ghostbuster - without getting covered in green slime. Having The Void on board to produce this experience could lead to something truly amazing as it comes just a short while after the firm received a stamp of approval from Steven Spielberg after he tried some of the company's tech first hand.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission.
