Rising Sun Pictures DFX Supervisor Adam Paschke will discuss the studio’s ground-breaking work on the recent film X-Men: Days of Future Past at EB Games Expo this Sunday in Sydney.
In a session titled EXCLUSIVE X-MEN, Paschke will discuss the creative and technical challenges RSP faced in creating the film’s time-bending “Pentagon Kitchen” sequence where Quicksilver (Evan Peters) uses his hyper-speed abilities to wreak havoc on military security. Paschke will reveal how the visual effects team literally made time stand still using an astonishing blend of live action, computer-generated objects and visual effects.
The session will be hosted by film critic and television personality Giles Hardie and will also include a live webcam interview with actor Sean Ashmore, who plays Iceman in the X-Men franchise. A screening of X-Men: Days of Future Past will follow Paschke’s presentation.
