Led by VFX Supervisor James David Hattin, VFX Legion’s team delivered a challenging mix of shots for ‘Half Brothers,’ director Luke Greenfield’s new film out of Focus Features. A fully remote company since its inception, Legion efficiently created a mix of complex photorealistic effects for the comedic drama.
The production was just shy a few shots when the pandemic brought shooting to a halt. The lockdown prevented the crew from getting back out to shoot the plates necessary for the movie’s penultimate scene. VFX Legion digitally created the sequence’s pivotal elements, delivering computer-generated effects that blend seamlessly with the footage.
