Led by VFX Supervisor Matt Richardson, Ghost VFX teams in the UK, Pune, Toronto, and Copenhagen proudly provided visual effects services on Fast X.
The end of the road begins. Fast X, the tenth film in the Fast & Furious Saga, launches the final chapters of one of cinema’s most storied and popular global franchises. Over many missions and against impossible odds, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved, and outdriven every foe in their path. Now, they confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced.
Ghost VFX worked closely with award-winning VFX Supervisor Peter Chiang, who oversaw the visual effects on the film. Ghost VFX’s London and Manchester teams handled two sequences, with assistance from artists across Ghost VFX’s Pune, Toronto, and Copenhagen studios.
“Peter (Chiang), guided by Director Louis Leterrier’s vision, wanted the sequences to be faithful to the previous films but also updated and unique to this installment. It was a thrill to work on and to be a part of the Fast and Furious franchise. This project wouldn’t have been possible without a truly global effort and all the incredible artists, production, and supervisors who went above and beyond to deliver these action-packed sequences.” - VFX Supervisor Matt Richardson
“The main sequence Ghost VFX worked on is a huge confrontation that forms a pivotal story moment, as several of the main characters battle it out on a huge bridge. Ghost VFX was tasked with working on the bridge sequence, which spans a fictional expanse of water between Rio de Janeiro and Puerto Rico. And this being the latest installment in one of the biggest action blockbuster franchises around, there was plenty of action. Missile strikes, digi-doubles, helicopters, armored convoys, set extensions, sky replacements, explosions, crowds, snipers, water/smoke/fire simulations, and embers, which means there was never a dull moment in our studios.” - VFX Supervisor Matt Richardson
