Hercules

Director: Brett Ratner
Studio: Paramount

VFX Supervisor: Ryan Cook
VFX Producer: Kate Phillips
Released: 25th July 2014

 

Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labours and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle.

Our primary role on the show was to bring the fantastical creatures of Hercules’ world to life, creating the Lernan Hydra, Erymanthean Boar, Nemean Lion, Cerberus and three half-starved, savage blood-caked wolves.  In addition we also  also worked on the Centaurs and  undertook significant environment work on King Cotys’ Citadel.
