Adds High-Tech Effects to New Prime Time Series "CHUCK!"
August 6, 2007--"I'm a computer nerd. I don't have abs..."
is certainly one of the more memorable comedic lines delivered by "Chuck" [Zachary Levi] during a debauched attempt to
break-into a secret vault via a "Mission Impossible" wire
harness, there is no denying the visual effects that add to the
scenes authenticity and production value. The custom laser and atmospheric
effects were created by Hollywood, CA based RPI Entertainment &
producers and director of "Chuck" hand-picked the effects
wizards at RPI Entertainment to deliver the highly-specialized
visual effects with little preparation and a quick turn-around for
the new prime time series which premieres September 24th [8pm/7pm
Central] on the NBC Television Network.
the effects was the tricky task of creating a large laser grid
across the scene's vault floor." Says Jeremy Vargus, Managing
Partner and Show Producer for RPI Entertainment. "Our effects
team had to create bright and fat multiple laser beams that zigzagged
across the set and that would appear on film. The team accomplished
this by a series of custom-made optics that widened the laser beam
while keeping the size and brightness consistent throughout the
pattern. In addition, the effect had to be delivered on a very
brightly lit film set that couldn't use heavy fog effects that would
cloud-up the picture."
