Description

If your friends are anything like mine- you guys love to settle in front of the TV and watch Jack Bauer kick ass on 24. Well- the season premiere episode this year created a ton of buzz amongst digital artists and graphic animators. Jarrod Davis of Zoic Studios created the most realistic, brilliant nuclear explosion to ever go off over the city of Angels. I tracked down the man himself to see what software, hardware and undeniable skill is required to create this kind of digital art. And now...he shares this knowledge with you. Watch and learn.

      When I saw the episode of 24 with the mushroom cloud I thought "Wow that's a great effect, especially for a TV show." That's not BS, I seriously thought that. It looked hella realistic.

      Hell yeah, that was a great scene and the emotion on Jack's eyes as happens is a classic moment in 24 history, and it aided these fine effects. CSI effect are pretty cool too, great feature. LS
