MAXIMUM SURGE
FLASH FILM WORKS created the visual effects for the un-released CD ROM game "Maximum Surge." We created digital matte paintings, live action motion control model shots of the tram, 3D animated traveling beams as well as some 3D landscapes. There were over 350 visual effects shots in the show.

When Cyber Cinema Interactive aquired the rights to the project, they had intended to update and release the game for the DVD-ROM market. There was also an attempt to turn the concept into a television series. We produced new shots for that effort as well, though neither project wound up advancing beyond the pitch stage.

The footage from the game has subsequently been used by Insight Film & Video for their "Maximum Surge" movie, released on video in the U.S. as "Game Over."

For the original game, we did a number of shots like the one below involving the vehicle.. In this shot it passes through an explosion.
After Cyber Cinema Interactive aquired the rights to the game, we went back and created more elaborate action sequences involving giant robots and ships that were used for promos for the game and the proposed TV series.
This is the promotional video that was made for the project after Cyber Cinema aquired the rights.
