Thinking Particles - Space Station Destruction
FumeFX- Smoke and Fire
“Big badda boom”
For the season 1 finale my team was tasked with destroying a space station. I used Thinking Particles, Fume and a lot of compositing love. The show runners wanted to make sure the stations was completely destroyed so each piece needed to break into smaller and smaller pieces.
A honey bomb? You know a REALLY sticky bomb!
I really enjoy blending cg with live action. Once we have the footage tracked I created a 3d version of the bomb. I then used basic particles that would drive a blob mesh like simulation.
