A Promising Beginning in Final Destination 5

By VFS Web Team, on August 12, 2011

"It was a painful shot. It was pretty intense."
It took 3D Animation & Visual Effects grad Michael Miller three months to complete his work on the eye-zoom premonition shot (you'll know it) in Final Destination 5, which hits theatres today.
On his first feature credit, Michael did everything from previs to camera work to animation. In total, he put in a year on FD5 as a 3D Generalist. No wonder he's looking forward to seeing it up on the big screen!
We also know of a few more 3D grads whose talents are on display in the newest installment of the most famous "how will they die?" franchise:
Biren Venkatraman (3D Modeler)
Chung-Ping Chao (Digital Compositor)
Louis Cox (Roto/Paint Artist)
Jesus L. Yapor (Compositor)
Oded Granot (Stereoscopic Nuke Compositor)
Anthony Di Ninno (Previs Artist)
Classical Animation grad Frank Akrong also contributed as a Compositor.
Be sure to look for the destruction of Vancouver's Lion's Gate Bridge (see it here in the trailer)!
Also coming out today is 30 Minutes or Less, featuring the work of Film Production grad Casey McClurken (Electrician) and 3D grad Christine Petersen (Digital Compositor).
