In the fast-paced world of action cinema, visual effects play a pivotal role in elevating the audience’s experience. Much-awaited Extraction 2 – starring Chris Hemsworth is no exception to this and we eagerly count down its release on 16th June 2023 on Netflix. Collaborating once again with the renowned directors Anthony and Joe Russo was constant source of inspiration for the bot artists. A team of more than 30 talented artisans, worked tirelessly on this project. With careful attention to detail, the Bot team led by Supervisor John Britto supported by our Prep Supervisor Karpagaraja contributed to over 200 shots by adding some seamless invisible effects to the film. A few of our highlights on our work involves deftly removing safety wires, rigs, and many other unwanted elements. The Bots also delicately stabilized and retimed footage to ensure a more immersive experience for the audience.
One of the most gratifying moments during this project was the VFX Appreciation Call, where we were invited by the Russo Brothers, and the Visual Effects Production team along with the Netflix team in Los Angeles. Being recognized for our contributions to Extraction 2 was an absolute honor. The call was spearheaded by the esteemed filmmaker Joe Russo and their appreciation was a sheer testament to the dedicated efforts and craftsmanship that went into every frame.
This accolade is another feather to the cap in BOT VFX’s journey and readiness to take on even more ambitious projects in the future. We are grateful for all the opportunities that provide us with a platform to showcase our artistry skills at a global scale.
