Prototype Train Visual EffectsGhostlight created this train entirely in the computer for the film The Prototype. The handheld shot was never intended for Visual Effects, which made incorporation difficult due to a lack of on-set supervision and measurements. This video shows how we modeled, surfaced, animated, and composited the train for the film’s climax.
