Los Angeles (PRWEB) May 4, 2006
Look Effects, the Hollywood-based visual effects company whose credits include The Fountain, The Life Aquatic, Into the Blue and The Passion of the Christ, announced today that it has received rave reviews for its work on the gymnastic film Stick It. The comedy from Touchstone Pictures and Spyglass Entertainment stars Jeff Bridges, Missy Peregrym, Vanessa Lengies and Tarah Paige.
Look Effects (http://www.lookfx.com), renowned for its visual effects work in feature film, television and commercial productions, served as the sole visual effects vendor on the project and completed nearly 80 shots on the film including rig and wire removal, a stunning time lapse gymnast workout sequence, and the addition of thousands of fans in to the grandstands of a stadium. Unlike most projects where visual effects providers are brought in during post production, Look Effects was actively involved in the actual creative production of the film including the development of a crowd library, which was later use to create the desired backdrop for the stadium sequences.
“Look Effects was honored to be the lone visual effects provider on Stick It,” said Henrik Fett who served as Visual Effects Supervisor on the film. “Being involved in the creative production enabled us to effectively utilize visual effects as an integral storytelling tool. More and more filmmakers are seeing the tremendous value of bringing visual effects professionals in on the early phases of the creative process. Our work on this film is testament to that fact.”
“Look Effects has once again distinguished themselves as valued and vested partners
on the success of this project,” said Daryn Okada, the Director of Photography on Stick It. “Their immense contributions were of paramount importance not only to the storytelling but the overall success and seamless integration of visual effects in to this film.”
