Did you know that the whole Philadelphia traffic jam sequence from World War Z was actually filmed in Glasgow? This, and other key sequences in the film, used environments created by Cinesite. Cinesite’s environment team decided that to give the “realest” look they would base the CG as much as possible on photographed reality. Cinesite VFX supervisor Matt Johnson and VFX photographer Aviv Yaron took extensive reference photographs of buildings in and around Philadelphia which were digitally projected onto geometry. The buildings were then placed in layouts in Nuke and fitted into the original Glasgow plates.

An exciting sequence on top of a New Jersey housing project where Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) is being chased by zombies was filmed entirely against greenscreen; the rooftop and helicopter were the only real builds. - Cinesite


WORLD WAR Z was directed by Marc Forster. The screenplay was written by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Drew Goddard and Damon Lindelof, based on the book written by Max Brooks. The cast includes: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, and Matthew Fox.
