Cinesite Raising Dion VFX Showreel

From the mysterious rain people to the menacing and colossal Crooked Man, Cinesite’s Montreal team created major supernatural effects for the Netflix series Raising Dion, working alongside VFX producer Helen Jen and VFX supervisor William Powloski.

The series follows widow Nicole who is raising her son Dion alone. As he begins to develop super powers she struggles to keep his gifts secret whilst searching for the truth about the circumstances of her weather-enthusiast husband’s death.

The clouds were created using Houdini combined with live action photography, projection and animated matte painting techniques. His form is made from tornado-like clouds, with his outline highlighted by intermittent lightning bolts forming a shifting human shape. The cloud volume defines his limbs and torso, with smaller lightning flashes outlining his extremities. When we first see him, his human form is more subtly silhouetted, but over the course of the series and as he consumes more people, he becomes more defined.

Many shots were filmed at night with rain on set, but there was also a requirement for rain to be added to several shots. In some instances 2D rain elements was used for wider and more distant shots where no interaction was required with the foreground. Where the rain is bouncing off the cast or Crooked Man, FX simulations, outline animations and rotomotions were used to create and give impact for the rain particles off the solid forms.

The main challenge for Cinesite’s visual effects team was in creating believability of the natural phenomena, whist hitting the brief in terms of characterisation and the needs of the story. Whilst fantastical, there always needed to be a convincing sense of scale and danger to support the audience’s suspension of disbelief.
