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 from very talented team. 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.
