Acclaimed director, Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) brings to life a richly complex prehistoric world in his epic film, 10,000 B.C. The film, which opened in the US on March 5th and in the UK on March 14th, 2009, follows the journey of a young hunter, D’Leh as he leads an attempt to track and rescue fellow tribe members who have been enslaved by mysterious warlords

Double Negative worked closely with Emmerich and VFX Supervisor Karen Goulekas over a two year schedule, which included a year of development, to help the director realise his vision of this fictional, ancient world. The main focus of work for the Double Negative team, led by VFX Producer, Stuart McAra and Digital Supervisor Jesper Kjolsrud, was a menacing CG sabre-toothed tiger, hair-raising 12′ tall CG ‘terror birds’ and far-reaching digital environments, which included great pyramids that reach into the skies.
