Rushes VFX For Wuthering Heights

News Image
Wuthering Heights is the latest film offering from Andrea Arnold.
Shot on location in England with cinematography by Robbie Ryan, Golden Lion Winner at Venice Film Festival 2011, the film is based on Emily Bronte’s novel.
Rushes Film & TV, who have worked with Andrea and Editor Nicolas Chaudeurge on both Red Road and Fish Tank, were asked to work on the VFX which consisted in part of a number of shots of rain addition. However, shooting in the north of England doesn’t guarantee rain on demand and the Rushes team, led by VFX Supervisor Jonathan Privett, were required to both add and subtract rain across a selection of shots to add to the mood and aid continuity.
In addition, various modern details on the landscape and buildings were removed and cleaned up. Louise Hussey, Rushes VFX Producer and Jonathan Privett explained: “The effects had to be seamless and invisible. Andrea’s films are never about flashy visible VFX but subtle work that simply works with the beautiful shots in the right context.”
Wuthering Heights will be released in cinemas by Artificial Eye on 11 November 2011.
The DI was completed at Rushes sister company, Deluxe 142 by Rob Pizzey.
