When the producers of Baywatch approached us about creating an action-packed main title, we decided that our pitch was going to be “Go Big or Go Home”.
A couple of months, millions of particles simulations, 10 virtual dolphins and one CG ocean later, this main title burst across screens around the world.
The original plate of the actors was shot on a blue screen in a water tank, so our artists recreated everything else in the scene, building the ocean, sky, CG animated dolphins and, of course, the massive title and the splash.
All design, production and VFX, including the water simulations, were handled entirely in-house.
We also produced the opening IDs that grace the rest of the film’s opening sequence.
It was a pleasure collaborating with the filmmakers and Paramount on this project.
