Previsualization Scott Meadows
Our team worked closely with director Steven Spielberg on the Academy Award and BAFTA-nominated “Ready Player One.” Our team's work began with motion capture and previs then transitioning into visual effects. Our Head of Visualization Scott Meadows joined early pre-production meetings to help design the VFX work, including the epic race through the fantastical world of New York City. VFX Supervisor Matthew Butler and a team of 250 artists produced the visual effects for the film's 300 real-world shots. From the gritty city shots to the hologram of Wade’s avatar, we focused on making our work look as physically realistic as possible - no matter what the visual effect was.
