CGI & VFX Breakdowns: "Dragon Girl | VFX Breakdown" - by Planet X | TheCGBros

Check out this revealing VFX Breakdown "Dragon Girl" from the talented team at Planet X - Planet X brought to life a dragon (with most of the team WFH) for the Norwegian-Dutch co-production 'Dragon Girl'.

Director Katarina Launing was in charge of bringing the story of a young refugee girl, who meets an orphaned dragon, to the big screen.⁠

Planet X was responsible for the complete visual effects share of the movie from pre to finish. Featuring well over 220 shots, 170+ with a fully animated CG dragon (one of the first attempts of this scale in The Netherlands), the efforts resulted in 12 minutes of engaging screen time performance.⁠

To take the lead on the animation department, Planet X turned to experienced character animator Peer Lemmers to supervise a team of 7 talented animators.⁠ Producers: Volya Films, Storm Films (Oslo) © 2021 Storm Films AS | Volya Films BV | Planet X.
