Hammer of the Gods

Cain & Able provided Visual Effects for the feature film, ‘Hammer of the Gods’

We brought the oceans and Viking boats to life in spectacular fashion, crafting simulations and lighting/rendering for a realistic and stylised environment.

With a fast turn-around and low budget, we put our stamp on it for a result we could be proud of.

We did this job out of our Shanghai studio. Bringing together some key talent and working remotely with the VFX Supervisor in London. We quickly got to work processing the DPX files and getting a camera track on them so we could get some previsualisation over as soon as possible. Kristaan, Cg Supervisor reports,  ”It’s key that we get to where the client wants to be as soon as possible, this means sending over previs versions as quick as we can so the actual time is spent finessing the shots, rather than spending too much time on the shot for it later to drastically change direction”.

For the ocean surface we used Houdini and generated white caps from the surface alongside spray from the oars when they interacted. We lit the result in Mantra and provided slap comps and final elements to the London team.

The blood was working off an incredibly fast solution of pre-existing digital assets. This meant we just had to adjust a few sliders so we could concentrate on the artist side rather than the technical. The solution was incredibly versatile for any changes the VFX Supervisor wanted to make.
