CGI of Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince
An article in The Guardian, UK, explained the link between Harry Potter and the Maths of fluid dynamics or flow (See pic below):
‘(Alex)Hope, managing director of the visual effects firm Double Negative said:
“In Harry Potter [and the Half Blood Prince],
the opening sequence has Death Eaters flying across the river Thames, destroying the (Millennium) Bridge between St Paul’s and the Tate Modern.’
“The way you create that is people who understand computational fluid dynamics, they know how water moves. They take the physics that’s used in modelling rivers and the flow of water and apply that in our world. People doing it need an artistic sensibility as well.
is fundamental to many of the
disciplines in our industry.”
Now there is motivation, mathpiggies. To create Computer Generated Images for movies you need maths!!!!!!
