VFX Miniatures - Banyan Trees

Chronicles of Narnia:
Voyage of the Dawntreader
  • Banyan tree trunks modelled in clay, moulded and cast in fibreglass resin.

  • Manzanita branches fitted via internal box section framework

  • Thousands of individual silk flowers applied

  • Trees rigged at 90 degrees allowing a light guided by a motion control model mover to pass through the miniature, resulting in a practical effect of a bright light descending through the trees.
