The unique and climactic motif of ‘The Rip’ involved complex interactions with the series’ characters. DNEG accomplished this task by approaching ‘The Rip’ both as a character design exercise and an FX Build. In total, DNEG delivered 144 shots of the series’ narrative and visual climax.

‘The Rip’ represents a liminal opening that connects the real world and purgatory — an area devoid of time and space. The story of ‘The Irregulars’ depends on the character’s interactions with ‘The Rip’, which itself had a character arc across the 6 sequences DNEG was entrusted to deliver.

DNEG’s FX and Comp teams used a layered, template approach to allow for maximum control whilst balancing and shaping the individual elements to communicate various moods and emotional beats. The complex interactions between ‘The Rip’ and the series’ characters were built from scratch by DNEG’s Research and Development teams and further augmented with bespoke set pieces.

Yoking concept design, FX simulations and complex compositing together, DNEG accomplished a visualization of ‘The Rip’ that accurately reflected its characterization as a constantly evolving, infinite void of light, turbulent energy and lost souls.
