Bourne in Bournemouth

News Image
Outpost VFX have said that they are "thrilled" to have completed a slice of the VFX on Universal's Jason Bourne – on general release in the UK today.

Jason Borrne, the fifth installment of the Bourne film series, sees Matt Damon reprises his role as former CIA assassin and psychogenic amnesiac Jason Bourne, trying to uncover hidden truths about his past.

Outpost said that working on the film was "a significant award" for them and is the biggest feature they have worked on to date.

CEO Duncan McWilliam said: "Bringing a little bit of Bourne to Bournemouth was hugely exciting for us and the beginning of Outpost being involved in tent pole movies. This is another example of us proving that you don't have to be in Soho to compete with the big boys!"

The Outpost VFX were created by VFX Supervisor Marcin Kolendo and VFX Producer Gez Hixson and their team who worked on a varied range of shots including, digital matte paintings and crowd replication for the Bourne Escapes sequence and the Vegas Chase sequence.

For the Bourne Escapes sequence their task was to reduce and improve the quality of the blood on the side of Matt Damon's face across a number of shots.

VFX Supervisor Marcin Kolendo added: "As the shots were extremely close on one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood the challenge was immense. We had to rebuild parts of Matt Damon's face using a mixture of photos and CG and then track them onto his face. The whole team worked hard and we are very pleased with the results".

Outpost VFX currently have a record 7 film projects in house including iBoy (Wigwam Films) and Interlude In Prague (Stillking Films) and Final Score (The Fyzz Productions) as well as numerous commercial and VR projects.
