In Universal Pictures’ Devil, a supernatural thriller with the signature touch of producer M. Night Shyamalan, five people are trapped in an elevator and one of them is the Devil. Another unseen force in the film is the invisible effects by award-winning Zoic Studios.
Zoic Studios previously worked with Director John Erick Dowdle and EP Drew Dowdle on their film Quarantine. For Devil, Zoic Studios produced 100 shots including set extensions, matte paintings, CG buildings and atmospheric and stunt based effects for locations interiors. Zoicâ€™s seamless work on Devil was a supporting but essential role to the heart-stopping narrative.
â€œSuspension of disbelief is at the very heart of the work we do via invisible effects,â€? says Zoic Studios Producer Raoul Bolognini. â€œWhen done perfectly, our work supports and enhances the overall experience.â€?
Devil is now playing in theaters everywhere. For more on the film, please visit:
