Tip #1626: Defying Gravity in “Passengers”
GridMarkets hosted Fabian Nowak, VES award winning Houdini artist, in a webinar last week during which he discussed how he created the gravity scene in “Passengers.”
In the webinar, Fabian talks about the research that he invested into the shot and how the CG and live action elements came together. As is often the case, there were many unexpected challenges to overcome in order to produce this iconic shot. Fabian describes the approaches that he took to “keep making forward progress” in the face of adversity . . . something we can all learn from.
