THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN
NVIZ completed over 500 previs shots and 600 postvis shots for Disney's The One and Only Ivan.
The film, which features Bryan Cranston, Angelina Jolie and Sam Rockwell, tells the story of a gorilla named Ivan (voiced by Rockwell) and his assorted animal friends, all of whom live in the Big Top Shopping Mall with their owner, Mack (Cranston). The NVIZ team, led by Nikki Atkinson, worked with director Thea Sharrock, VFX Supervisor Nick Davis and cinematographer Florian Balhaus across the work, which included 7 previs sequences.
As a Previs generalist artist, I worked on many of those shots on behalf of Nvizage. My tasks included modeling and texturing environments such as the circus or the office.
