One of the most memorable VFX scene for me is the train crash in the subway in the 2009 movie Knowing. Even now just watching that scene gives me chills, it is such a catastrophic event and the VFX are done so well that it has the same effect on me every time.

It took me a while to hunt down the studio that did the scene and it turns out to be one that i hadn’t come across yet, Animal logic. They also did some VFX in two of my favourite movies Hero and house of flying daggers.

It’s always difficult to find out what software these big companies use. I couldn’t find what they used for Knowing but or Toon town they used Autodesk, 3ds Max.
