WATCH: Rodeo FX's Pacific Rim VFX Breakdown Reel

Among Hong Kong Bay and mostly inside Gypsy Danger,
Rodeo FX also worked on Newt's first drift partner 

Rodeo FX tackled a comprehensive array of creative and technological challenges through its contributions to “Pacific Rim,” marking the company’s ninth collaboration with ILM. Rodeo FX created and produced 200 visual effects shots for Guillermo del Toro's “Pacific Rim”.

The effects include key matte paintings and CG environments, including Hong Kong Bay and the Shatterdome military base, along with the accompanying set extension work and practical rain effects.

Rodeo FX was once again called upon to create exceptional environments and immersive 3D matte paintings. However, Rodeo's CG contributions were much larger than on any previous motion picture. In addition to environment work, ILM trusted Rodeo FX to create, simulate, and animate fully CG creatures and vehicles for a variety of sequences. Rodeo FX was also responsible for all the variations of the interior Robot Head shots, which included building and animating a complex CG rig used to control the actions and movements of the robots – a seamless photo-real blend of both CG and practical FX.
