World’s Strongest Man.
This opening sequence was designed and directed by Daryl Goodrich, and filmed at IMG Studios. The concept was to convey the build-up of tension and excitement, and demonstrate the huge forces involved in the legendary trials of the World Strongest Man series.
The super slo-mo rope and chain breakages were filmed using Phantom & RED cameras shooting at 1000 FPS. The shots were then augmented by the Camouflage VFX team, to show how these elements disintegrate when they are pushed too far.
