THE THIRD FLOOR’s contribution to Godzilla: King of the Monsters (Warner Bros.) was as sizable as the eponymous hero himself, with teams in LA and London applying their skills in visualization to multiple and vast sequences throughout the film.
The work led by TTF’s supervisors helped director Michael Doughtery and his team map the structure for key scenes; communicating mood, designing cameras and composition to help inform the shoot and the stellar work of the VFX teams. TTF’s artists rigged super-sized creatures and constructed locations as diverse as Antarctica and a destroyed city of Boston in which to stage the action, whilst developing lighting scenarios and the choreography for the film’s signature battle scenes. THE THIRD FLOOR worked with the film’s various department heads throughout production and always in close collaboration with the wide team of VFX artists.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters allowed THE THIRD FLOOR to display its unique capacity as a multi-faceted creative partner of scale, playing a critical role in all forms of visualization from start to finish. As Andrew Honacker, one of TTF’s supervisors sums up, “The sheer scale of the work we pulled off on this project is amazing. From Antarctica to Boston, the scope of the choreography and design, creatively and technically, is enormous. We worked from concept to boards, to previs through to techvis and postvis – we did a lot!”
