Portfolio / Grimsby

Nobby lives in an English fishing town with his loving girlfriend and nine children. For the last 28 years, he’s been searching for his long-lost brother Sebastian. However, when the two finally reunite, Nobby finds out that his sibling is a top MI6 agent who’s just uncovered a sinister plot. VFX assisted in creating realistic and safe elephant semen for the production.

The initial enquiry for Grimsby asked for assistance in creating realistic elephant semen, which had to be safe for human contact. The product was developed to a controlled SOP (standard operating procedure) and quality system ISO:9001, meaning all 16,000 litres were consistent in colour and physical characteristics. We developed a two phase solution using paraffin liquid and our in house chemists’ water based solution. We also assisted the client with an environmental service to ensure that once the filming had finished the fluids were safety disposed of in accordance with the current environmental legislation.
