Anyone see this movie? Just saw it this evening with my wife. Completely blown away by the DFX. Unfreakingbelievable! Not going into details (don't want to give anything away), but this movie was incredible: unique story, amazing effects, and...wow...left me breathless.

Would be interested in "knowing" the tools used for creating and compositing the special fx in this one. If you haven't seen it, check it out and let's speculate. :thumbsup:

No need to speculate.

Shot on RED. VFX by Animal Logic using Maya, Renderman and propietary tools. Lots of practical effects as well.

Thank you for the link. It presented a lot of information about the manner in which the FX were created. And using the Red? Wow. If you see the film for no other reason, check it out for the camera and the FX. The story is much better than just that, of course, but I've never seen such realistic disaster effects. Incredible.
