Time Based Arts came to Lumiere for help creating realistic splashes for their latest commercial for Vodafone.
The shots involved a whale breaching the water’s surface and dragging the water naturally.
Of course, to create these effects, we used Next Limit’s RealFlow.
We used a variety of techniques to create the main body water and separate elements for the specific areas, such as trails of drips from the tips of the tail.
We simulated the main body of water in separate sections so the team at Time-Based-Arts could render and comp this in to their backplates.
