Creating human figures springing from a series of animated water people was a challenging process. As a starting point we needed to shoot photographic reference of real performing characters that could give our CGI sculptors excellent reference for anatomy, movement & musculature as the figures progressed through each movement. Rigged figures were then created in CGI for each of the characters. The final result required a detailed retouched combination of photographic water splashes & realistically posed figures.
