Behind the scenes
Bringing a 20 foot statue to life was a fantastic challenge for the Fin VFX crew.
Extensive reference material was photographed on location in Egypt to guide the creation of an authentically weathered statue.
To reproduce this artistry in detail, Fin turned to Zbrush and also employed the services of extremely tall and athletic extras to capture the grace and agility of this moving statue through motion capture.
A full digital duplicate of the courtyard location was created onto which location photography projected. This enabled the digital statue to receive shadows and bounce light directly from its real-world surroundings.
