Time-traveling agent Valerian is sent to investigate a galactic empire, along with his partner Laureline.

Valerian, was shot in Paris from January to June 2016 where 4DMax were responsible for all the 3D scanning, processing & texture photography for each of the sets, props & characters. Being a production heavily reliant on VFX, our team were on site for the duration of the shoot, scanning & photographing hundreds of characters, props and sets, as and when they were available, day or night.

The 4DMax equipment and team were put through their paces, in use constantly from the start to the finish of the shoot. Post Production was in full swing from day 1 of the shoot so we also worked our processing systems day and night to successfully satisfy the needs of each of the VFX houses, Weta, ILM & Rodeo VFX.

Scott Stokdyk Visual Effects Supervisor said of our work “ I think going with 4DMax was one of the best pre-production decisions we made for VFX!!!”
