Client: 20th Century Fox Director: James Mangold
Based on a true story, 20th Century Fox’s “Ford v Ferrari” details the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance car race and preceding events. Teaming with Ford Motor Company, visionary car designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale) challenge the racing dominance of Enzo Ferrari with determination, grit and an innovative new vehicle design. To achieve the historical accuracy and photorealism desired by Director James Mangold, Production VFX Supervisor Olivier Dumont drew from extensive reference materials from the time period in guiding the feature’s visual effects and had VFX shots filmed practically to capture the real-world lighting. Dumont charged Method Studios with creating the climatic Le Mans race sequence, which was overseen by Method VFX Supervisor Dave Morley.
