"The Light at the Start of Everything, Written by Iain Thomas"
I worked closely with director Kim Geldenhuys to create the VFX on this film at our studio (Wicked Pixels) in Cape Town. Allot of experimentation when in to creating the opening sequence of the film where we tried to strike a balance of abstract and literal for the journey and formation of the diamond. I was also responsible for the creation of the opening sequence in 3D.
