Ninja Assassin

Ninja AssassinNinja AssassinNinja AssassinNinja AssassinBased on the original VFX Layouts and some R&D, I first created realistic taser darts and curly metallic wires, all physical sims and looking quite nice.

On reviewing the shots,  the director James McTeige decided, that the tasers would look too realistic and that a guy with superpowers like Raizo would not be forced to his knees by such a weapon. So I made some CG concepts for a more sci-fi looking projectile and he liked this version of the conductor probes. They claw themselves into Raizos jacket on impact and serve as a target for the energy blasts coming from the weapons.
