Hellboy (David Harbour), a supernatural being, protects the earth being part of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. Soon, he faces the Blood Queen (Milla Jovovich), an ancient witch who along with her horde of foul monsters, wants to bring about the end of the world. Hellboy's journey begins by fighting Camazotz, a lucha libre wrestler who was transformed into an appalling werebat and finishes with an army of grotesque creatures from hell.
We were responsible for the opening fighting sequence, where our main challenge was the transformation of the werebat Camazotz from human to creature form, with his features changing gradually every shot.
To achieve that, we prepared different variants of the model, textures and lookdev in order to adapt them to each transformation phase, including a wounded version for the body and a ripped one for the costume.
The final result of our work, complete with fur and blood simulations, is a great mixture of action and gore and it’s definitely a lot of fun to watch!
