Kon-Tiki Film VFX - Some of the best vfx I have seen.

Stumbled upon this today and it really goes to show what a small team of dedicated and talented guys can do! No need for an army. I honestly believe this is some of the best vfx I have ever seen - I could be biased as I am a massive shark (Jaws) fan and this is something I've been waiting to see in vfx. Important Looking Pirates VFX deserve a big award and in turn I am just doing my little bit to get work that deserves being seen in the lime light.

That is some seriously good work. Especially the photoreal lighting/shading/rendering.

Their page talks about a proprietary render engine called "Tempest" being used to render particles and blood.

I wonder if all of it is rendered with Tempest, or just particles and volumetrics?

In any case, that's some of the best work VFX I've seen in a long time. These folks did a really good job on it.

It is really good work, but nowhere near the best vfx I have ever seen. D-neg, DD, ILM, weta all routinely make better stuff than that, IMHO.

Looking great, I'm specially proud because the friend of mine did amazing water simulations
It wouldn't be fair to compare ILP with ILM, Weta ... because in all honesty their number of employees is much much smaller, maybe like a one department of those giants, therefore they did better job imho.

I agree they did an amazing job for what it is. But, I was just saying, it's not the best vfx I have ever seen. But if you're talking about best quality, the final result is all that matters, not how many or who worked on it. How many times have we heard that about demo reels and students giving excuses for how little time they had, etc...

I think being a small studio does give them some "extra credit" since they don't have the resources ILM or Weta does, but in the end, the work is the work, and that's some very nice work.

Some epic water and nicely done everything in this, too..

The book was amazing, very inspirational. I recommend it to everyone. Really took some guts to do what Thor and his crew did...I cant wait to see this film.

That. Is. Amazing. The way they blended cg with real footage is just perfect.

Talking Amazingly good compositing and integrating live footage with 3D

I agree with VFX. Kon Tiki looks like an amazing film. It has the best effects I've ever seen. And damn those sharks look so real.
