Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
Lead by VFX Supervisor David Seager and VFX, MPC completed more than 250 shots. The team focused on the action packed finale and work included creating a 1970’s Times Square, a 2D no-ghost cartoon, a 300 foot tall 3D character and extensive FX work.
In addition to creating a full CG character from scratch for 2016’s Ghostbusters, ZERO also delivered a variety of other high-end effects across the film.
ZERO worked to replicate the look of the original films’ proton packs and proton streams in CG, create the resulting and destructive FX caused by the proton streams, implement dust and other environmental details, and remove wires from actress, Melissa McCarthy.
