The Fate of the Furious (2017)
Director: F. Gary Gray
Company: Proof, Inc.
Role: Previsualization Lead
Time on project: October 2015 - May 2016
Previs Supervisor: Earl Hibbert
The Fate of the Furious (previously named Fast 8) was a project that I started nearly at the beginning of previsualization, eventually becoming lead previsualization artist for the Los Angeles team, where I helped to oversee seventeen other people in all by the end of preproduction. As the franchise pushed further toward topping previous entries, wild stunts and worldwide locals were used, including Iceland and Cuba (this film is the first major Hollywood picture to be set there since the lifting of the U.S. embargo). At the start of preproduction, I was able to meet director F. Gary Gray while at Universal Studios. This is never a given for previs teams on feature film projects, so that was enjoyable, along with touring the studio's theme park rides. Our team went on to previs five large sequences, including a swarm of remote-controlled cars attacking a motorcade in Manhattan, and an epic base attack and submarine chase.
Sequences on which I worked:
New York "Zombie Time" Chase
Russian Base Attack
