I worked on this project as a Simulation/VFX artist with CA Scanline Production GmbH, Munich, Germany. My main role in the project involved Rigging/Skinning and working on techniques for muscle simulation and secondary skin movements.

I also worked on some particle simulations using Thinking Particles, an underwater environment modeling, and some character animation shots involving the shark.

Shots from this film are not included in my showreel, but can be viewed at http://www.scanlinevfx.com/muc/en/reels-haialarm.html
