-- Animated Anecdotes: As the action unfolds, go inside the production with onscreen trivia on the making of 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS.
THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT: THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT explodes with energy and power as it goes behind the wheel with some of the most daring drivers the world has ever seen. Lucas Black stars as Sean Boswell, a teen street racer who discovers "drifting," the deadly combination of brutal speed and terrifying hairpin turns and switchbacks in Tokyo. With Bow Wow as his con-artist sidekick and Sonny Chiba as a dangerous Yakuza, THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT DVD features out-of control bonuses that take this movie experience to its limits.
Some 10 vendors contributed to the project, including (in credits order): Hammerhead (206 shots), Rhythm & Hues (123), CIS Hollywood (172), CafeFX (58), Pacific Title (164), Illusion Arts (4), Industrial Light & Magic (2), Perpetual Motion Picture (19), Digital Backlot (4) and Hatch FX, who provided cliff extensions and a complete environment for six Hammerhead shots. Sixteen additional shots were created by Proof, the previsualization unit set up by overall visual effects supervisor Mike Wassel, a veteran of the first two movies. Coordinating the project with Wassel were vfx producer Crystal Dowd and vfx plate producer Lynn Gephart.
In the two previous movies, visual effects were often utilized to create impossible camera moves, and to simulate car stunts that were too dangerous to perform live. In the third movie, the requirements were completely different. "Director Justin Lin wanted the car races and action sequences to feel real," Wassel recalls. "He avoided using the kind of impossible shots that we had in the first two movies. On this project, the main requirements of the visual effects were creating greenscreen composites for car interior shots, and also placing the action in Tokyo, Japan. Some of the car races take place in the Japanese capital, but it was impossible to have the streets closed down for our location shoot. So, we had to create the environment digitally, which became a huge challenge."
