Artem SFX Provided Physical Effects and Prosthetics For Danny Boyle’s T2 Trainspotting – In Cinemas Now
The award-winning company, Artem SFX, supplied physical special effects for T2 Trainspotting, 21 years after Danny Boyle’s 1996 original cult film, starring Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle.
Artem created the atmospherics for the film, including rain, wet reflective grounds and thin mist. Several fights among the characters also required physical special effects’ input. Equipped with blood rigs, Artem created all the safe, breakable props, such as a smashing glass table, balsa wood pool cues and a toilet made from rubber and foam. Artem also provided all the prosthetics for the film. This is the second time Artem has worked with Danny Boyle, the first being the 2012 London Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Artem have also just provided atmospherics for actor Woody Harrelson’s directorial debut, Lost in London Live. Filmed in one take and broadcast live to cinemas in America on 19 January, Lost in London Live starred Woody Harrelson himself, Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson.
Artem technicians used a low-density smoke machine, the ‘Heritage Hazer’, designed by Artem, for use in heritage properties.
