Guillermo Del Toro's Mirada Studio Releases PACIFIC RIM VFX Breakdown Video
A new Pacific Rim visual effects breakdown video from Guillermo del Toro's special effects studio, Mirada, has been released online. Hit the jump to check out the digital artistry that went into the creation of the enormous Jaegers and the monstrous Kaijus.
Storytelling studio Mirada was the creative and technical force behind the two-minute prologue of Guillermo del Toro's robots vs. monsters epic, Pacific Rim. Working closely with del Toro, who co-founded Mirada with Pacific Rim DP Guillermo Navarro, director Mathew Cullen and Javier Jimenez, the Mirada team designed, created, shot and edited the key sequence, which included over 80 fast-moving visual effects shots.
PACIFIC RIM SYNOPSIS - When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Pacific Rim was directed by Guillermo del Toro, from a script written by Travis Beacham. The cast includes Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke. Coming to DVD & Blu-ray this October!
