Making of Pacific Rim by Mirada Studios
Storytelling studio Mirada was the creative and technical force behind the two-minute prologue of Guillermo del Toro’s robots vs. monsters epic, Pacific Rim. Working closely with del Toro, who co-founded Mirada with Pacific Rim DP Guillermo Navarro, director Mathew Cullen and Javier Jimenez, the Mirada team designed, created, shot and edited the key sequence, which included over 80 fast-moving visual effects shots.
As Zach Tucker VFX supervisor at Mirada’s explains:
The prologue montage covers a lot of ground in a short window so we had a lot of information and visuals to pack in. Our work also had to look believable and match the quality of ILM’s work. To achieve this, we didn’t take any shortcuts and built a ton of detailed assets from scratch, from Kaiju to Jaegars and more, with all the animation, lighting and composting done in house.
