We are pleased to share a sample of the visual effects work created in our San Francisco and Vancouver Studios; for Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ ‘Kong: Skull Island.’, including digital environment work, water simulations, a couple epic battle sequences and the most complex hair simulation that we have ever created. We hope you enjoy the reel.
The Rodeo FX team delivered 80 shots for this film. Much of our work can be seen in the film’s opening sequence during a fight between two World War II pilots. We also created numerous matte paintings for multiple locations around the island and its jungle, including a sequence showing pillars that reveal secrets about Kong’s origins when properly aligned.
Kong: Skull Island is nominated for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature at the 2018 Visual Effects Society (VES) Awards and for the Visual Effects category at the 2018 Academy Awards.
