Sorting our Sand in Furiosa

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga VFX Supervisor, Josh Simmonds chatted to Life Hacker about the key sequences created by the team in Melbourne. From the challenges of wet sand to digitally replaced cars, Josh shares all the details of working on this most recent instalment of George Miller’s Mad Max Road Saga.

Almost a decade after providing visual effects for Mad Max: Fury Road, Framestore’s Melbourne studio revisited the stark desert landscape to build a new story, exploring the origins of Furiosa (Anya Taylor-Joy). Packed with high-speed chases and intricate environments, Visual Effects Supervisor Josh Simmonds and our artists across Melbourne and Mumbai delivered over 200 shots of adrenaline filled action. The film marks the first feature to be completed in Melbourne on Framestore’s VFX pipeline, following the integration of Method Studios in 2020.
