Director: M. Night Shyamalan
DP: Mike Gioulakis
I served as On-Set Visual Effects Supervisor working on location in the Dominican Republic. As the sole VFX Supervisor on set, I worked with director M. Night Shyamalan and DP Mike Gioulakis to shoot the film’s biggest VFX sequences. One of the main characters, Charles, is stabbed with a rusted knife and this subsequently leads to his body being fully consumed by an infection. In another scene, Kara becomes pregnant and we see her belly expand to a full term pregnancy in a matter of seconds. Another character, Chrystal, meets her demise as her bones break and re-heal in seconds into a twisted horror inside a small cave. The work included close collaboration with the SFX makeup and stunts teams in order to achieve the films shocking visuals.
