Floods, Fish and a Flooded Valley

March 31, 2014

Austrian satire is often mordant and exaggerated. The Austrian town of Bad Fucking, pronounced ‘fooking’, takes it to the extreme and CINEMA 4D helped create the effects for this film in truly Austrian satirical manner.



The road that leads to the tourist town of Bad Fucking winds along the edge of a narrow valley. At the very beginning of the movie, a huge avalanche blocks the road and makes in impassable. The avalanche, made up of boulders, mud and debris, crashes through the valley and flattens a car on its way. The team at Cybertime created this scene with the help of CINEMA 4D. “It was particularly important to be able to control the avalanche’s path,” explains VFX artist, supervisor and producer Günther Nikodim. “The Dynamics feature’s follow position settings were extremely helpful. They made it possible for us to use simple keyframe animation to define the avalanche’s path relatively precisely; the motion of individual elements was controlled using dynamics.”
