Environment Supervisor, The Jungle Book - MPC

Director Jon Favreau and The Jungle Book’s production team made the bold decision to film the movie without any outdoor locations. How were they to shoot a single actor on blue screen, and create a world around him that is so realistic that audiences would believe took place in the jungles of India?
A new approach to filmmaking would be required, harnessing the latest technology and creative talent. In the end a team of more than 800 computer graphics artists would work for over a year animating over 50 species of animal and crafting the full CG environments and simulating earth, fire and water.
In this presentation MPC Environment Supervisor Audrey Ferrara will reveal the creative and technical challenges behind MPC’s work on the photoreal environments of Disney’s The Jungle Book.
