Industrial Light & Magic tackled 220 shots for HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE. I focused primarily on the World Cup sequence that opens the film.
ILM created an entirely computer generated Quiddich World Cup stadium, complete with over 80,000 screaming fans. Partial setpieces for the stands and the Ministry box were built against bluescreens for live-action work. The compositing team had a difficult challenge-- to make these largely computer generated environments to look at photoreal as possible.
Tim Alexander was ILM's visual effects supervisor. Francois Lambert, Katrin Klaiber and I were the compositors for the World Cup sequence, with Patrick Tubach supervising compositing for the film.
Below is a sampling of some of the shots I completed for the film.
