Behold the magic: Ninja Assassin on TRIXTER.

Written by: Stephe Thornton, Managing Editor ^@@^

[Cloud USA 7/2/11] I was tooling around the Internet Highway the other day and was delighted to come upon TRIXTER, the digital production company responsible for almost 200 visual effects shots in Ninja Assassin. The following is from their company profile page:

“Since 1998, TRIXTER has been creating outstanding visual effects and digital character animation for feature films, television and commercials. From the early days, TRIXTER established itself as a major player in the field of emotive character animation, both for fully computer generated animated features as well as live-action productions. Over the past few years, TRIXTER has expanded its expertise by branching out into visual effects and has recently accomplished some outstanding work for German and international projects such as Ninja Assassin, Percy Jackson, Lilly The Witch, Iron Man 2, Narnia 3, Green Hornet and many more…”

TRIXTER recently opened an office in L.A., which would certainly make it easier to continue their work with the movers and shakers in Hollywood, but their location in Berlin may be where work on Ninja Assassin (particle and liquid effects, compositing, 3D animation, etc.) was done.

What an impressive portfolio. They’ve had a hand in a lot of major projects, not to mention they have the best Ninja Assassin blurb ever. It says everything you need to know in a language you can definitely understand. Short, sweet, and to the point.

Trained since childhood to be a lethal killer, Raizo has since turned his back on the Ozunu clan that raised him and now seeks revenge for their heartless murders. Teaming up with Europol investigator Mika, Raizo steadily butchers his enemies while inching ever closer to the long-awaited bloody reunion with his former master.

Directed by James McTeige and produced by the Wachowski brothers, creators of The Matrix.The Warner Bros. production features famous Korean popstar Rain in the role of the lethal killer Raizo.

So take a spin around the TRIXTER site. Revisit your favorite Ninja Assassin visuals and many of your other favorite movies and programs and trailers while you’re there. See composite shots deconstructed and the work behind TRIXTER’s magic. And watch their absolutely killer showreel, which starts off with… you guessed it, Raizo, Raizo, and more Raizo! Yeah!

  1. That’s cool to see Jihoon’s movie on the chart. But it should be number 1 on the charts.
