In 2019 RISE put the pedal to the metal for “Hobbs & Shaw”, our second gig in the “Fast & Furious” universe.
RISE led by VFX supervisor Jonathan Weber gave a motorcycle chase through London the finishing touches, swapping out backgrounds and adding CG cars and busses to make traffic look more dangerous. For some shots, the villain Brixton (Idris Elba) including his motorcycle were replaced entirely by a CG Digi-double to make the stunts look even crazier. FX simulations for broken glass and tire smoke helped enhance the mayhem.
