From attack drones, to autonomous bipedal mechs, to a quirky and emotive character named Cogman, our team was responsible for a wide variety of characters and environments in this latest installment of the Transformers series. While having the opportunity to work closely with Industrial Light and Magic, the team at Atomic Fiction provided world-class effects work for a franchise, and director, that knows nothing less.
The nuts and bolts of comic relief.
Cogman presented a rewarding opportunity for our animation and lighting teams. Physically, the character is highly complex, yet behind all the gears and metal, his performance needed to connect at a human level.
Tasked with exploring the full range of Cogman’s emotive possibilities, our team landed on performances that that captured the perfect mix of light-heartedness, and tense drama, his scenes called for.
