32TEN Studios is tapped to provide practical effects for Paramount Pictures and Regency Enterprises’ hit motion picture Noah.
32TEN Studios, a San Rafael (Marin, CA)-based company that provides production facilities and services, as well as practical effects services, to entertainment, advertising, community and corporate clientele, has produced numerous practical effects for Paramount Pictures and Regency Enterprises’ hit motion picture Noah.
For Noah, 32TEN Studios shot a number of practical elements that were used by Industrial Light and Magic in constructing a variety of scenes. These elements included simulated rain, crashing waves, and smoke effects, among others.
“The practical effects shot by 32TEN, when combined with our CG work, helped us create realistic images for this story,” said ILM VFX Supervisor Phillippe Rebours, who supervised the work done on Noah at 32TEN Studios.
Noah stars Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe in the title role in the film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope. Directed by visionary filmmaker Darren Aronofsky. Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins and Logan Lerman also star. The film was written by Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel and produced by Scott Franklin, Darren Aronofsky, Mary Parent and Arnon Milchan.
