Chad Wiebe -The oil rig environment was a huge undertaking. The oil rig model itself had immense amounts of complexity and details that you would find on real-world rigs, so keeping in line with that was crucial. The only part we received lidar for was the helipad, so the rest of the oil rig had to be built from scratch.
The helicopter was built using a previous model which was of the same type of chopper, modified to match the lidar we received of the chopper used on set.
