Animal World |《动物世界》
Fin Design + Effects brings its VFX expertise to genre-defying Chinese blockbuster, Animal World, which launched June 29th, 2018. Directed by Han Yan, the highly-anticipated film stars Hollywood legend Michael Douglas and Chinese megastar Li Yifeng.
Loosely based on Nobuyuki Fukumoto’s manga, Ultimate Survivor Kaiji, the action-packed film follows a young man, who attends a mysterious gambling party on a ship. If he wins the game, his debts will be cancelled. However, things aren’t so straightforward and the hero soon finds himself plunged into a chaotic world.
Boutique design and VFX house, Fin, worked closely with production company Bang Bang Pictures to deliver key visuals to aid the storytelling. Fin called into action all elements of its bespoke visual effects pipeline to create photo-real clowns and the monsters they battle.
One of the most notable of these elements is a mind-melting glitch effect that transforms the hero into a sword-wielding, fighter clown. Another key design challenge, entrusted to Fin, involves several fully computer-generated moments (Limboland) that help explain the rules and theories behind the game of survival which the film revolves around.
With studios in Sydney and Shanghai, Fin makes it easy for Chinese filmmakers to access some of the world’s best visual effects artists and their design-driven style. Animal World marks the second Chinese feature film that Fin has worked on this year, having created an exciting drone-attack sequence for the box office smash-hit, Operation Red Sea. Other recent credits include Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel Studios and Logan for Twentieth Century Fox.
Animal World is set to be released on 29th June 2018 across China and the UK.
