the dead one (el muerto)

Visual Effects

Anything that had a mirror or glass finish would serve as portal to and from the Aztecā€™s parallel worlds so demons could come through.  To achieve a supernatural feel we used event driven particle systems combined with cloud tank and lens elements.   Entire sequences were tracked and treated this way.  Due to creative issues, production had decided to shoot any footage of the Tezkat god, so we built a highly detailed CGI model that was capable of extreme close-ups with realistic facial motion.  Additionally we produced featuring digital rain, matte paintings, scars, eye replacement, gunshots, wounds, beauty shots and unique transitional elements.
