Discovering the special effects studio Pixomondo
I had already told you about the digital paintings of Game Of Thrones characters illustrated by Alex Negrea. This time I invite you to discover aÂ special effects studio who worked on the series: Pixomondo.
You can imagine the astronomical amount of special effects present throughout the series, but what interested me most is that Pixomondo are the creators of beautiful dragons Khaleesi, one of the leading characters of the series always accompanied by her 3 dragonneaux. ThisÂ video work absolutely crazy as the product company to make more real than nature Khaleesi dragons. It presents only the work of season 4.
Pixomondo even won the trophy of “Outstanding Visual Effect” at the 13th Annual Conference Special Effects ( Visual Effects Society Awards ) for their work on the series. Walking on their site, we learn that they are also the creators of special effects movies Oblivion, After Earth, the 4 fantastic or Fast and Furious 7.
This world renowned company has studios in Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart, Los Angeles, Beijing, Toronto, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Its offices are in Berlin, Detroit, London and Shanghai. It has overÂ 400 employees worldwide and a strong place in the world of film, television, and even advertisements: among other for prestigious car brands like Chevrolet or Porsche, or other products such as home appliances.
The German company was established in 2001 through a certain Thilo KÃ¼ther.Â Through its participation in the film “The Red Baron” the company gets worldwide recognition in 2008. In 2012, studios win an award for Best Visual Effects for the film “Hugo Cabret” by Martin Scorsese. With 62 minutes of special effects of their own 94% of all special effects, they deserved it.Â I was always amazed by the advances of recent years in special effects, and Pixomondo clearly deserves its fame.
