Once more returning to the world of Resident Evil, MPC delivers brutal and bloody VFX for the action horror.
Returning to the origins of the massively popular RESIDENT EVIL franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games to life for a whole new generation of fans. In RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland…with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, a group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.
427 visual effects shots in total were created by the MPC teams in Toronto and Bangalore. Led by VFX Supervisor Jo Hughes, MPC was tasked in bringing to life a host of iconic, gruesome and mutated creatures in addition to a host of explosive FX destruction, and recreating the iconic locations of the video game in precise details, and retro tone.
