CGI is getting to the point where you can't tell if it's real or not...

In the summer 2011 ILP was awarded a massive sequence for the upcoming Norwegian feature film "Kon-Tiki" directed by Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg. The film is about the legendary explorer Thor Heyerdal's epic journey crossing the Pacific on a balsa wood raft in 1947.
Our sequence takes place during a major emotional peak of the movie, as the crew struggles with internal conflicts while facing a critical situation involving white sharks.
ILP delivered 58 shots in total, with plenty of hero shots and some extremely complex fully computer generated scenes.
This is a VFX breakdown giving you a closer look at some of shots we made.

    Can't believe what you see on the screen with your own eyes anymore. Just imagine what could be done with so called news reports.... Scary.
