Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Directed By: Chris Columbus

Digital Domain was involved in the earliest stages of Director Chris Columbus’ adventure of a teenage demi-god, designing the look of the creature ‘The Fury’ during pre-production, then joining the project as the lead visual effects company with Kelly Port as Visual Effects Supervisor. ¬†Digital Domain animated the Hydra – a five-headed, CG fire-breathing, CG-slime-dripping beast that morphs into a 10-headed beast – and worked on sequences involving both of the mythical creatures. ¬†For some particularly gnarly CG water scenes, Digital Domain deployed it AMPAS Sci Tech Award winning FSIM fluid simulation system, and its considerable artistic strength, with impressive results.
