Transformers Age of Extinction (2014)
As Generalist supervisor on Transformers Age of Extinction it was the job of myself and the Generalist team to create believable city environments as well as a vast alien spaceship interior. The alien Knightship was a huge sprawling gothic-horror looking asset where many of the film's sequences take place. During the movie action also takes place in Chicago before a third act climax in Hong Kong.
Stills photography shoots in each of these real world locations enabled us to create digital versions of these easily recognizable cities using a combination of full 3D assets as well as traditional digital matte techniques. This allowed us to create set extensions and augmentations (to make Detroit live action plates look like Hong Kong for example) as well as executing full CGI environment shots.
