Production Company: Tony Ayres Productions

Dreamscreen Partners: Tracklab / CVP

BEHIND THE SCENES

Fires was a new and exciting challenge for Dreamscreen. Dreamscreen had the opportunity to spearhead two dramatic scenes from Fires, as well as several simtrav sequences throughout.

This video shows some behind the scenes clips of how Dreamscreen Australia were able to create a realistic but safe filming environment for this important project.

Big thanks to Tony Ayres and the crew who worked with us throughout production. Also, thanks to our partners at Tracklab, CVP, Xsens & Deakin Motion Lab.

BURNOVER SEQUENCE

Dreamscreen Australia were able to create a realistic but safe burnover sequence for one of the most nail-biting peaks of the series.

This included:

  • Research and development of previz concepts

  • Scanning and creating 3D assets

  • Blending practical effects (sparks) with virtual (fire/background)

  • Creating the 3D environment and fire simulations

MALLACOOTA WHARF

With the help of Tracklab, Dreamscreen were able to recreate the crowded Mallacoota wharf scene inside the studio. You'll see the wharf in its entirety in Episode 6.

The art departments wharf build was scanned and then Dreamscreen created a 3D clone that extended the set piece virtually for 9m, allowing production to reproduce the blood red skies and anxiety felt by all those stuck on the wharf during those frightening fires.
