When Zoic approached Fusion to create the stormy ocean surface, waves, splashes, rain, and streaming water off a cg whale for ABC's Once Upon A Time, the team was thrilled! Fusion, with its extensive experience with fluid fx on any scale and schedule, has a well-developed suite of tools and methods for creating oceanic fx - with cg fluid credits in The Three Musketeers, Gulliver's Travels, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Guardian, to name a few. Fusion created the cg sims for Zoic, handing off meshes for Zoic to light & render.
