A Look at the Making of the Quicksilver Super Slow-Motion Scene From ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

Visual effects team Rising Sun Pictures offers some insight into how it helped create the memorable super slow-motion scene featuring new mutant recruit Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

RSP collaborated with VFX Supervisor Richard Stammers and Director Bryan Singer to realize the creative vision of the sequence through the production of scores of CG props, including frying pans, knives, pots of boiling soup, carrots and bullets, as well as the omnipresent cascades of water droplets. Each of these elements needed to be rendered in near microscopic detail, placed precisely within the geometry of the kitchen and choreographed to move and react realistically to lighting, other objects and characters.
