Northern Irish Company Contribute VFX To ‘Looper’

Joseph Gordon Levitt in 'Looper'
Belfast visual effects company Blacknorth have spoken about their work on critically-acclaimed Hollywood blockbuster ‘Looper’.

The Northern Irish company helped contribute to the visual effects production of the sci-fi thriller starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt, which follows hit men who assassinate targets sent from the future.

Blacknorth helped San Francisco-based studio Atomic Fiction create the science fiction environments in the futuristic thriller, working alongside the film’s visual effects supervisor Karen Goulekas.

The Belfast studio – founded by Evelyn McGrath and Kris Kelly - produced top tier paint and rotoscoping on a number of scenes in the movie.

Evelyn McGrath, director of Blacknorth, said “it was fantastic to be part of such an exciting project”. She added: “You don't often get calls like that and then get a chance to work on shots with Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt sauntering through them.”

Blacknorth previously worked alongside Atomic Fiction on the Adam Sandler comedy ‘Jack and Jill’ and have recently completed work on ‘Good Vibrations’. They have also previously worked with RTÉ, Northern Ireland Screen and the Irish Film Board.

Kris Kelly, also a director of Blacknorth added: “It's great to see local talent working on such a high profile VFX, we can only expect to see the industry grow with work of this standard being produced in Belfast.”
