Rhythm & Hues: Life After Pi and Voodoo

Rhythm & Hues: Life After Pi and Voodoo

Here is the documentary to Life After Pi. It shows what Rhythm & Hues had to go through during the time Life of Pi was getting an Oscar. I had the great pleasure of working there to start my career and continued for a few years, even while Life of Pi was in production. It was an amazing studio and as you can see from the video, the people were amazing and really cared about each other and the studio. A piece of me will always be there and I have created some amazing experiences and friends from my time there. So have a watch and be reminded of some of the great from the studio and also some of the troubling times for the VFX industry.

Also they posted a great video showing off their proprietary software Voodoo. MAN do I miss this pipeline and software. It was thee best tool-set I have had the pleasure of using yet and I miss it everyday. So much hard-work and talent went into it and it shows in their work over the last 25yrs.

Rhythm & Hues: A brief history of animal CGI

I feel proud to have had the privilege of being a part of this studio and some of their amazing work over the few years that I was there. I witnessed some of the tech and amazing art that was produced at Rhythm and Hues over this time. With all of the well-deserved recognition that they are getting from Life of Pi and The Huntsman in the VFX categories, I was lucky enough to see these projects coming together and we all felt like this was something special. This is a great video to show how their pipeline and production of some of this great work has developed over the years.


Congrats to all of my friends over there and good luck!
Enjoy!
