fxguide’s Mike Seymour interviews James Dodson on iClone & REPLICAS

Share

Fxguide.com, vfx industry pro Mike Seymour recently talked with James Dodson, Executive Producer of REPLICAS, about the film and use of iClone for previz, mocap and postviz. Dodson shares the cost-savings, added-value and flexibility iClone provided to the director and production crew. Know more about Keanu Reeves’ direct involvement with the production, beyond the script, and more in this story on how iClone was used by the filmmakers from fxguide.

The team used iClone in the production of Replicas in three ways:
1. James Martin and John Martin led the previz team in visualising some of the action sequences such as the car crash in iClone.
2. There was also conceptual work around the AR infographics that Keanu’s character manipulates, that needed the software for the interaction to work onscreen.
3. Finally in post-production, iClone was invaluable in animating the robot when it gains consciousness.

 “…the benefit is in how inexpensive and accessible tools, such as iClone, are able to, democratize the entire process of motion capture and real time rendering – I am just addicted to previsualisation, and the level of quality and detail we can do for a few hundred dollars and still have studio quality results is incredible.”
