The famous fairy-tale is brought to life with a new twist in Snow White and the Huntsman – an epic action-adventure starring Kristen Stewart (Twilight) as Snow White and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron as evil queen Ravenna who determined to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler hasn’t bargained with is that the feisty heroine is a very dangerous adversary when she sides with the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) who was sent to kill her. Snow White and the Huntsman also features Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean) as the Prince.
Double Negative was delighted to work with renowned commercials director Rupert Sanders on, this, his first feature film. The team worked on 100 shots overall including key two sequences – ‘Dark Forest’ where Snow White finds herself after escaping from Ravenna’s castle and the climax when Ravenna fights Snow White in the Mirror Room and summons the ‘Dark Fairies’ to obstruct Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and William (Sam Claflin).
The team was led by VFX Supervisor John Moffatt and Visual Effects Producer Kate Phillips, alongside CG Supervisor Sean Stranks and CG Supervisor Dan Neal.
