Director: Seven S. DeKnight

Previs Duration – 10 months

For the Pacific Rim Uprising, HALON was given one key directive: “Make some bad a$$ shots,” and we delivered. Our team of previs artists, led by Brad Alexander, were given the technical and creative freedom to pitch ideas to the film’s key creative team, many of which are rendered in the final feature. Our team used Motionbuilder, Maya, After Effects, and Abode Premiere to render some ambitious and gripping shots.
