V-Ray Digital Environments in Looper

Kevin Baillie of Atomic Fiction talks about using V-Ray  renderer in their digital effects work on a number of recent films, including some very impressive digital environments for Looper.

Scroll to 1 min 55 seconds to get straight to the Looper digital environments, but the rest of the interview is also worth viewing.

The interview is via the Chaos Group TV channel.

Update 31/01/2013 – Since writing this post, Atomic Fiction (via Twitter) have directed me to some online articles about their effects work on looper at the following locations:

ITV News VR Newsroom

Earlier today, ITV launched an entire re-brand of its channels and programmes which included ITV News from ITN.  I worked with ITN’s in-house computer graphics department to create the virtual newsroom space that can be seen beyond the glazing of the virtual set. Although I have produced designs for VR sets before, these digital sets are probably the most integrated project that I have worked on to date and it’s been quite inspiring to explore the possibilities offered by this kind of technology.

The whole design package is very much a team effort. The VR studio/set was produced in-house by ITN, based upon designs by BDA. The VR newsroom was produced by me and designed in conjunction with BDA who produced the initial design concepts. The overall brand re-design is by Lambie Nairn.
