Catching Fire has the bonus of a genuinely charismatic performer at its center. Jennifer Lawrence, now an Oscar winner thanks to "Silver Linings Playbook," emotes like crazy throughout "Catching Fire," but you never catch her acting.Chicago Tribune
DNEG were the main vendor for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for which we tasked with creating such iconic imagery as Katniss and Peeta’s flame cloaks, the spinning cornucopia, the Capital procession and the Arena itself (including the tidal wave and end sequence). In addition, our work also involved a large amount of environment and crowd work, CG fog and spinning water.
Work was split between London and Singapore with VFX Supervisor Adrian de Wet and VFX Producer Melinka Thomson-Godoy leading on the show.
