Academy Award winning filmmaker, Andrew Stanton, brings us “John Carter”, an epic action-adventure set on the mysterious planet of Barsoom (Mars). Based on the classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroghs, which celebrates its centenary this year, the film tells the story of a beleagured military captain, John Carter (Taylor Kitch) who is inexplicably transported to Mars and where he finds himself caught in the middle of a violent conflict between the planet’s inhabitants, a race of 12 foot tall creatures.
The film’s overall VFX Supervisor was Double Negative’s Peter Chiang and Dneg’s internal VFX Supervisors were Ryan Cook, Ken McGaugh and Paul Riddle, while the VFX Producer was Matt Plummer.
