All plates were shot on location and used for my vfx assignments during my study period at Sheridan college. The plates were Undistorded using a distortion grid on location, tracked, modeled, textured, simulated, rendered and composited. I used Maya and Houdini for my Simulation of Fire and smoke/dust. I used NukeX For my composition and color corrections.
