Destruction - Crumbling Walls
What’s a day in the life of a real-time VFX artist without a little destruction? We’ve been having a blast destroying quite a few walls in the studio lately, so we pooled our minds and came up with the following list, which is also a list of some pretty awesome movies (if we do say so ourselves).
If you’re working on a crumbling, exploding wall, check out the following references:
