Breaking Down the Visual Effects of Frank Miller's 300 - 6 June

"Join Popcorn Taxi for a look behind the creation of the stunning visual effects on Frank Miller's "300", and how Animal Logic brought the film's stylized world to life.

Animal Logic's Senior Compositor Lindsay Adams will break down the process of how the Sydney based team created millions of Persians battling 300 of Sparta's finest soldiers in fully CG environments.

The talk will feature a look inside the film with a detailed breakdown of the process behind some of the heaviest digital compositing work done on the show, including the Crazy Horse sequence where a 3 head camera system was used to capture multiple lens lengths of the same action that were seamlessly composited together to achieve one massively long piece of killer action.

Lindsay will follow the visual effects process from start to finish, demystifying the tools and techniques that are used to create the amazing images you see on the big screen. The presentation will include a selection of clips and previously unseen material.

Lindsay Adams specialises in visual effects and digital compositing for feature films and has worked on films such as House of Flying Daggers, Stealth, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, Oliver Stone's World Trade Center, Happy Feet and 300.
