Outpost VFX delivered its talk at Europe's premier visual effects event on 5 May
We were really excited to speak at this year's FMX Conference, Europe's best known VFX and animation event.
Overall VFX Supervisor Roni Rodrigues, internal VFX Supervisor Ian Fellows and CG Supervisor Craig Tonks were invited to deliver a presentation of our work on News of the World, the Tom Hanks starring Western directed by Paul Greengrass.
In their presentation, titled 'Resurrecting the Old West for News of the World', the team covered a wide array of our work on the film, sharing technical and creative problem solving that helped Outpost to deliver over 350 complex VFX shots during the 2020 lockdown, as well as unique insight into the responsibilities of a client-side VFX Supervisor.
Key features of the talk included a breakdown of some of the key city builds in the film such as Red River, Dallas and San Antonio, a look at how we created natural phenomena like rivers and a towering sandstorm, and much more.
FMX has been held in Stuttgart, Germany since 1994. This year the conference went remote in response to the ongoing pandemic, so attendees were invited to watch talks online and contribute questions to online panel discussions.
