Port of Lies
In 2023, Wwwind Studio participated in the highly anticipated legal drama series, " Port of Lies " where they were responsible for all the visual effects production. This collaboration marked their first project with director Freddy Tang, who transitioned from the legal profession to the world of filmmaking. The series is adapted from Freddy Tang's novel of the same name, which won the 2nd Mirror Fiction Million-Dollar Film and Television Novel Award. It's a work that not only entertains but also inspires, making it suitable for viewers who enjoy legal dramas and care about social issues. Check out our Breakdown special to see the dedication we put into its production!
As the protagonist, Tong Baoju, says, "The truth can drive people crazy," the visual effects aim to immerse the audience in every aspect. It starts with the precise depiction of the media chaos resulting from the explosion of information, including elements like live broadcasts, encrypted videos, television, and surveillance screens. We use the murder case of foreign fishermen as the backdrop, creating a vivid and sometimes gruesome sense of déjà vu. The visual effects include the chilling and decayed details of Abu's fingers, the healing of Tong's father's severed finger, the accident scene involving the first mate "Ah Min," and the father-son photo that Tong Baoju gazes upon.
These visual effects intricately intertwine with the social issues and complex human nature portrayed in the series, leaving a lasting impact and ensuring a smooth, gripping pace throughout the drama. You won't want to step away from the screen for even a moment.
