The list of movies using SpeedTree in 2015 continues to grow with almost every opening weekend. California studio WhiskeyTree has told us that they used SpeedTree in the upcoming retro-futurist film “Tomorrowland” starring George Clooney. “Tomorrowland” is partially set in a parallel dimension where technological optimism has created a pristine vision of what our future could look like. Judging from the trailers we expect to see a lot of SpeedTrees incorporated into Brad Bird’s (Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Up) vision of a bright and beautiful future city. WhiskeyTree also reported that they previously used SpeedTree in the dystopian world of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part 1” (2014).
“Mad Max: Fury Road” is hands-down one of our favorite movies that have come out this year and we were thrilled to find out that despite that it is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland (filmed in Namibia) they used SpeedTree for the greenery. SpeedTree often shows up where you least expect it in movies. This is a testament to the quality of work done by the VFX studios as well as the Academy Award-winning quality of SpeedTree. For a great example, check out Brainstorm Digital’s VFX reel for The Wolf of Wall Street which made extensive use of SpeedTree.
