Although full of large scale practical effects, Twister would simply not have been possible without its photorealistic titular characters — the tornados. And these were expertly crafted in computer graphics by the team at ILM, still fresh from the CG milestones achieved on films like Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park. Leading the team was Stefen Fangmeier in his first sole outing as visual effects supervisor.
Ultimately all the debris was CG and it had this very hand-held feel which was important to Jan and Steven to represent how people might shoot a real tornado in that situation. It helped, too, that Fangmeier had tinkered with the tech behind synthetic twisters in a previous job.
Some were scientists in meteorology and they were trying to simulate how tornados were formed. So in I did some visualizations for these tornado chasers — they were very simplistic shapes, but we computed them in a 3D volume and showed the tornado forming. Then eight years later I was helping do it for the movie.
If there had been any hope that real tornados might be featured in the film, that was quickly dispelled during principal photography when the filmmakers tried to chase actual twisters, with no luck. That meant ILM had to make major in-roads into effects systems that would help bring the tornados to life — at the time still an extremely difficult proposition to control and render realistically.
Also, up until that point ILM had mastered creatures and hard surfaced CG objects, not the particulate nature of a twister. Even though ILM was pushing for absolutely photoreal tornados, Fangmeier knew that whatever they produced in CG with a particle system could still only be an approximation. In a tornado there would be an uncountable number of particles in a volume that the computer would not have the resource to simulate.
So we had to make it look like the kind of level of detail that was in a tornado. To work out that level of detail, ILM gathered reference, which, unfortunately, was generally poor quality. No one had been out there with a 35mm camera being able to capture a tornado. The basic shape of a tornado ranged from between 5 and 10 million particles. Animators would actually first choreograph the general movement of the tornado with what was effectively a hollow funnel that could be twisted and turned, but then with so much dirt and debris and destruction to co-ordinate, that part of the effects had to remain a simulation.
Still, Fangmeier needed a level of control — it was a fantasy movie after all and the twisters were art directed to be overly menacing. The twisters, of course, wreak a whole lot of havoc. From lifting cars to whole petrol tankers and smashing through barns, the particle effects simulations ILM had developed would also have to interact with solid elements and disintegrate them.
Initial talk of building some of these elements as miniatures was quickly dismissed by Fangmeier. So we decided early to build all these objects in CG and have them properly interact with lighting and being matted against the tornado so it would disappear or re-appear. The debris was a complex mass of particle simulations and hand-animated pieces, sometimes in the order of 10 to 20 thousand-fold.
Animators actually had fine control of hero pieces of say a barn that was to be ripped apart — itself a structure of about pieces that would then be released into the forces of the tornado.
Well, that lasted about two days because he blew so much debris into these scenes that the actors quickly got eye infections! So we were going to add a lot of that debris in CG in post. I let him shoot it as naturally as he could and our incredible compositors did a pretty great job of integrating everything.
There were limits, though. At one point the camera department fitted out the film cameras with specialized shakers, essentially drills, that would make it appear as if a lot of wind was impacting on them. If you do this here the matchmove is already tough enough that it will be even more challenging.
He stopped using them after that.
Indeed, Fangmeier was perhaps more up front with De Bont than other filmmakers had been able to achieve.Stefen Markus Fangmeier, 59 years old, lives in Larkspur, California.

‘We got cows’
IndieWire spoke with VFX supervisor Stefen Fangmeier about the stunt sequence that was shot without cuts until he jumps by using a large crane to follow all the chaos. Arya gets to do it all. Then he gets back up and he runs up the deck, but the bolt hits there, and the guy falls off the stairs. Remember when all the wights fell into the broken ice? They were actually falling into a tank, which was supposed to be the lake below them.
We assembled one of those and then built a tower of the height that was maybe 12 feet. To provide the right amount of drama, the camera had to be close enough to Dinklage to capture his reaction, and yet far enough to follow the action all the way down to the water.
The timing and framing for this was far trickier to manage than they initially thought. We did that six, seven times with the stunt double and it was always very difficult to keep him in frame.
Eventually the team decided to just try the shot with Dinklage in it — even though that could potentially take more time in the long run. We got it in one take. And then his wife and child showed up with a birthday cake, and it was really sweet.

Hanh Nguyen May 8, am.Stephen Rosenbaum is an American visual effects artist and supervisor, and has worked for more than 25 years on numerous movie and commercial productions, including six that have won Academy Awards.
Rosenbaum was raised in West Los Angeles and graduated from Palisades Charter High School where he met and eventually married his high school sweetheart. He graduated from University of California, Berkeleyand remains a Bay Area, California resident along with his wife and their two girls.
The previous members of this department moved to the building next door and formed the company Pixar. This new group of artists received their first chance to make a computer generated character when James Cameron asked them to create the Pseudopod water creature for The Abyss.
Cameron followed with Terminator 2 and the group expanded the artist base and created one of the first digital manipulations of a human character. The artists continued to thrive with opportunities to animate and render the seminal dinosaurs in Jurassic Park.
Rosenbaum then oversaw the removal of Lt. Dan's legs, rephrasing the words of presidents, and the fanciful feather animation in Forrest Gump. These movies help spark the rapid transition of traditional film-processed visual effects and inspired a complete paradigm shift in visual effects and filmmaking methodologies  and commercial digital imagery manipulation.
Rosenbaum spent several years working on various projects at Weta Digitaland inhe began work on Avatar. For two years, Rosenbaum worked with Cameron in Los Angeles during performance capture and in New Zealand during live action photography. InRosenbaum was hired  by Digital Domain to start a character animation development group. He brought together some of the best computer graphics artists and technicians, and they built a modernized approach to creating physically and behaviorally realistic digital humans and creatures.
InRosenbaum directed the creation of a virtual Michael Jackson posthumously performing a previously unreleased song live at Billboard Music Awards. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Handbook of Computer Animation.The largest loss of firefighters in the last 20 years was about 36 in 1994. Hunt reported that the funds for the 2012-2013 fiscal year for fuel reduction treatments has been cut by about 20 percent.
Other documents at the forum show that there are a total of 46 million homes that are in the potential line of fire in what is called the wildland-urban interface (WUI).
The average number of structures lost in wildfires has increased rapidly since the 1990s. The years 2003, 2007 and 2011 had the most structures lost across the country at 5,781, 4,900, and 5,850 respectively. Along with the rise in fires and structures lost are the costs associated with fighting fires, in direct correlation.
The rest of the forum was spent on Community Wildfire Protection Plans, funding for plans, WUI fire codes, the Firewise USA program, and the Ready, Set, Go program.
All of these programs are efforts started by federal, state and local governments and local private communities to educate property owners on their responsibilities to make sure their property is fire safe.
Most forest area fire departments and communities have one or more of the above programs and will help property owners assess their risks. That includes, in some cases, funding to help with thinning treatments.
