The zombies are communicating....

The Visual Effects for Paul W.T. Anderson's latest film Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D were largely handled by Canada's Rodeo FX and Mr X FX, both long time cineSync customers.

In an interview with French-language website Art of VFX, Rodeo FX's Compositing Manager Ara Khanikian, the question was asked how the collaboration worked between Rodeo FX, the director and Mr X FX.

"Our contact with the director was very minimal on this project because we worked directly with Mr. X in Toronto. We had a very close relationship with Dennis Berardi as the founder and VFX supervisor of Mr X and as the Toronto VFX supervisor for this project. Our process of approvals and corrections were made almost exclusively through weekly sessions on cineSync."

The rest of the interview breaks down much of the VFX work that went into creating the post apocalyptic vision of a zombie ravaged Los Angeles and a brief discussion about the challenges of stereoscopy as it applies to a VFX pipeline.
