Cutting Edge completed 298 VFX shots for the action-horror creature feature, Guardians of the Tomb.
In Guardians of the Tomb, the discovery of a mysterious labyrinth holding the mummified remains of an emperor leads to the unleashing of a horde of carnivorous spiders.
Cutting Edge’s VFX shots included the creation of CG Spiders, FX animation, makeup enhancements, set extensions and the opening titles sequence. Cutting Edge was called upon to heighten the horror and bring terrifying CG creatures to life. To create CG shots, arachnids were manufactured through creature design, modelling, texturing and shading, and rigging techniques with keyframe animation applied to create a swarm animation for spider clusters in multiple shots. Complementing intensified spider clusters, Cutting Edge supplied fluid animation of lava, additionally compositing CG fire and explosions.
