Behind the Magic: Creating the Kaiju for "Pacific Rim"

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 7 ม.ค. 2014
  • Although "Pacific Rim" begins more than a decade into the battle with the city-destroying Kaiju, in this video the visual effects team at Industrial Light & Magic will discuss the process of creating the incredible race of alien monsters from the earliest stages of concept and design. Enjoy the video!

    I love how the Kaiju are so very distinctly "Del Toro", you can kinda feel them as being props from a Del Toro set that has his unique style. with the slight disproportionate limbs, the tentacles, the eyes- especially the eyes are all very distinct "Del Toro".

    I was wondering. What size textures did you guys use on the kaiju and what did you use for the muscle/ fat simulation. I'd love to be able to do something even one tenth as good as that
