Sony's The Unholy : From Shutdown to Silver Screen

The Unholy, a Sony Pictures/Screen Gems feature film produced by Sam Raimi came to a grinding halt just 10 days shy of their wrap date, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But with the ingenuity of the visual effects and post production team, the film was pulled off the shelf, solutions were devised, and the film was completed. It hit the big screen in theaters across the country in April – one of the first films to be released theatrically, in the U.S., since the COVID outbreak.

Join us at May’s LAPPG Meeting as we explore the original shoot prior to shutdown with Cinematographer, Craig Wrobleski, CSC and how Temprimental VFX navigated the shutdown using creative VFX solutions, to bring “The Unholy” to the Silver Screen.
