ReDefine at Virtual SIGGRAPH 2020

Hair and Fur in an Evolving Pipeline with ‘100% Wolf’ at Virtual SIGGRAPH 2020

Known for celebrating the VFX techniques at the cutting edge of technology, industry conference SIGGRAPH goes virtual this year and we are excited to present our debut session! 

Alongside our colleagues at DNEG, ReDefine will be contributing to a session titled ‘Hair & Fur in an Evolving Pipeline’, presented by ReDefine CG Supervisor François Schneider and DNEG Creature Supervisor Adam Vanner.

DNEG’s in-house fur software, Furball, has been in use since 2012 and has undergone significant evolution to adapt to the changing needs of productions since then. In this session, Adam will discuss how the software has evolved, including its recent use at DNEG on films such as ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Togo’, before handing over to François for an overview of how ReDefine adapted the use of the tool on animated feature ‘100% Wolf’ – including the complexities of creating 51 different furry characters for the movie.

‘100% Wolf’ is currently sitting at #3 in the UK Box Office. If you would like to know more about our work on the show, head over to our 100% Wolf Show Page.

TESTIMONIAL

“ReDefine really delivered for me and HBO on this project; starting fully remote before the pandemic started, then continuing to make deadlines we needed up through delivery. I appreciated Serkan’s patience with changes that came up, and would definitely work with ReDefine again on a similar project!”

Karen Heston – Additional VFX Supervisor and VFX Aesthetic Supervisor, The Undoing

TESTIMONIAL

“The visual effects for Brahmastra will pioneer new techniques and processes that have not previously been seen in movies for the mainstream Indian film market. Having worked with DNEG, and now ReDefine, I know that together we are creating amazing visuals that reflect a quality and calibre that audiences have come to expect from big budget Hollywood films.”

Ayan Mukherjee – Director, Brahmastra

TESTIMONIAL

“COLLABORATIVE” is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about ReDefine. I’ve had the pleasure of working with ReDefine for a little over a year now, and throughout the production process, the work has been excellent and we have always been able to collaborate – finding creative solutions for all our production challenges. I am very excited to continue our working relationship and look forward to completing Rock Dog 2 with the ReDefine team in 2020.”

Mark Baldo – Director, Rock Dog 2
