VFX Breakdown Done By Method Studios -VFX Supervisor: Dave Morley
Method Studio Did 1100 shots. The main vendor was Method Studios, they had done great environment work previously as well as difficult crowd shots
Method Studios took care of different sequences like the Ford office green screens and the Ford factory interior extensions throughout the movie but the main one was the Le Mans races (59 and 66).
Rising Sun worked on Willow Springs and Daytona plus a few continuity shots.
The Yard VFX added all the surrounding elements during Henry Ford’s ride in the GT40, and LAX test track in general and also the establishing shots of the Ford headquarter and the Factory view from the office. They also made all the dashboard shots from scratch.
EDI came late on the job but was a great help pushing some compositing shots through while the other vendors were already working hard on the rest.
Shooting Location shot in Los Angeles and surroundings for the most part including Daytona
