Leading visualization house Proof Inc. provides previs and postvis services to Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious 6, as well as the production of 200 visual effects shots.
Los Angeles, CA -- Proof Inc., one of the film industry's leading visualization houses, has provided previsualization services to Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious 6, which was released May 24, 2013. Proof provided previs for six sequences of Fast & Furious 6, which involved the creation of 40 minutes of original animation, as well as post-vis services and the production of 200 visual effects shots.
Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz, the producer for Fast & Furious 6, said, “The Fast & Furious films are all about extreme action with real cars and real cameras. I'm a big believer in Previs. It's the best way to develop the intense action that our fans expect long before anyone even shows up on set. We’ve been working with Alex Vegh and the team at Proof for years and they really have the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise dialed in.”
Proof’s previs Supervisor Alex Vegh, who has been the Previs Supervisor for the second through the sixth entries of the Fast & Furious franchise, adds, “We were involved very early on this film with director Justin Lin in the development process, and stayed on until the end of the picture. I had the opportunity to work with Justin on developing the ideas for the action sequences and to create the action beats. We then animated the shots and designed the sequences in previs. I took the previs with me on set and had the chance to supervise some splinter unit scenes, which was very interesting and a lot of fun. Due to the escalated level and quick pace of the production of this film, I concurrently worked with teams on both previs and postvis. This was the first film where we used an all British crew in London – 20 people – as well as a team based in Los Angeles. I even traveled with the production when they went on location to the Canary Islands!”
Founded in 2002 in Los Angeles by Ron Frankel, Proof Inc. is one of Hollywood’s leading providers of high-quality visualization services for the feature film and live entertainment industries. The company has already been retained to provide previs services for Fast & Furious 7. Other recent projects include The Hangover, Part 3, 42, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Hunger Games, Underworld: Awakening 3D, Fast Five, and The Green Hornet. Upcoming projects include Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, R.I.P.D., Riddick, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
