The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of fantasy films from Walden Media, based on the series of books sharing the same name and written by C. S. Lewis. Seven movies are planned in all and the series already stands as the 15th highest-grossing film series of all time.
A large part of that success has been due to the filmmakers' ability to bring fantastic creatures and environments to life. The films are brimming with special effects, so it's no wonder that MPC - one of the world's top visual effects houses - was called on to work on the most recent installment in the franchise: "Voyage of the Dawn Treader". With the movie being newly released on DVD, we wanted to talk with MPC about their work. Elliot Newman, the company's Head of Assets obliged us with a great interview covering what his company did for the film and the ways in which ZBrush was used.
Next time you watch the film you'll know just where to look to see ZBrush in action!
