Maggie VFX Breakdown Behind The Scenes
Most of Cinesite’s shots established the eerie and abandoned “dead world”. The visual effects team destroyed houses, burned cars, tagged walls, killed every hint of life and reinvented locations by adding abandoned football fields, rusty water towers, empty flyovers, dusty debris on the road and a Kansas City skyline.
While some shots were entirely computer generated, most were created as traditional two and a half D digital matte paintings in Photoshop layers projected in Nuke onto cards, sky domes and basic geometry modeled with Maya and integrated by the compositors using additional elements from our SFX library.
Cinesite also enhanced the disease progression, replacing parts of Maggie’s face using the original makeup as a base and covering it with multiple layers of veins to bruises and scabs.
